As benign tumor originating in Schwann cells of nerve sheath, Schwannoma can rise in any site involving cranial nerve, sympathetic nerves, peripheral nerves excepting optic nerves and olfactory nerves. Schwannoma rarely occurs in trachea, and although can appear in any part, most often seen in the lower third of the trachea.
