  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We report a patient with rectal schwannoma who underwent laparoscopic low anterior resection. A 67-year-old male patient suffering from abdominal pain and diarrhea was referred to our department. Barium enema and computed tomography demonstrated a submucosal tumor of the rectum. Because our pre-operative diagnosis was carcinoid or gastrointestinal stromal tumor of the rectum, low anterior resection with D2 lymph node dis-section was carried out. The postoperative pathological and immunochemical examinations revealed benign rec-tal schwannoma. The rectal schwannoma is extremely rare.
