 A 31-year-old woman with abdominal distension and back pain was found to have abdominal tumor by ultrasound examination during medical checkup. Abdominal CT showed a well-defined tumor measuring 46mm in diameter adjacent to the right side of the celiac trunk. The tumor was diagnosed as schwannoma by endoscopic ultrasound fine needle aspiration. Laparoscopic resection of the tumor was performed with concomitant use of needlescopic devices in order to improve the esthetic outcome. The tumor was located directly adjacent to the nerve plexus around the celiac trunk, thus we concluded that the tumor had originated from this plexus. Here, we report this relatively rare case of schwannoma arising from nerve plexus around the celiac trunk with a review of the literature.
