Background: Schwannomas are usually benign tumors that arise from the schwann cells in the neural sheaths of peripheral nerves. Most schwannomas occur in the head, neck, or limbs and rarely in the retroperitoneal space. In the retroperitoneal space, schwannomas are most commonly located near the adrenal gland. We report a successfully resected retroperitoneal benign schwannoma near the inferior vena cava (IVC) using laparoscopic surgery.
