Schwannomas are erratic benign tumors of nerve sheaths. We herein report a remarkably rare case of intrapulmonary schwannoma of the left lower lobe. A 46-year old European lady presented with chronic dry cough with an abnormal shadow found on her chest X-ray. Chest computed tomography along with Positron Emission Tomography showed an oval mass in the posterior segment of the left lower lobe with a standardized uptake value of 4.1. Thoracoscopic wedge resection was undertaken. The diagnosis was bolstered by histopathological and Immunohistochemical methods. The lady had a smooth post-operative course with no recurrence on follow-up.
