Abstract

Neurinomas of the hypoglossal nerve extending extra-cranially are rare; a schwannoma in a 63-year-old woman causing nerve palsy is reported. The tumour presented as a slow-growing mass in the right submandibular space; a surgical approach with transcervical exploration was performed. The post-operative course was uneventful.
