The case of a fifty year old house wife admitted to the Government General Hospital, Madras, with complaints of vague chest pain of four years duration is reported. Investigations revealed a solitary pulmonary nodule situated over the apex of the right lung posteriorly. lnspite of thorough investigations, it could not be made out whether the tumour was benign or malignant. As the diagnosis was in doubt, she was taken up for thoracotomy, where a 2’’/2'' circumscribed solid tumour was removed from the posterior mediastinum at the apex of the right lung. Histopathological examination clinched the diagnosis of schwannoma.
