Abstract

Brachial Plexus Schwannoma in a Patient with Axillary Mass: A Case Report

Differential diagnosis of axillary masses includes axillary lymph node metastases from carcinoma, lymphoma, or melanoma, and rarely neurogenic tumors. Only a few cases of axillary schwannoma have been reported in literature. Due to their rarity and complex location, they have diagnostic and therapeutic challenges.

Keywords: Axillary masses; Axillary metastasis; Brachial plexus schwannoma
