abstract

  • Benign esophageal schwannomas are rare tumors with only 14 cases reported in the English literature. All previous reports describe excision without major esophageal resection. We report the case of a 33-year-old woman with a giant esophageal schwannoma that required total thoracic esophagectomy.
