Introduction: Schwannomas are benign encapsulated neoplasms that arise from proliferation of Schwann cells and can originate from any cranial, peripheral, or autonomic nerve. While most schwannomas present in the head and neck region, only 1% of these occur intraorally and these typically occur on the tongue or floor of mouth.Case: We report here a 55-year-old woman seen at our institution who presented with a mass of the soft palate. Biopsy found it to be a schwannoma of the soft palate, which was surgically excised.Conclusion: Because of the predilection of schwannomas to occur in the head and neck region, otolaryngologists must maintain a high level of suspicion for unique and rare presentations.
