Schwannomas are benign peripheral nerve sheath tumours that may occur throughout the body. They rarely occur in the nasal cavity. Paranasal schawannomas are uncommon lesions, representing less than 4% of all head and neck schawannomas. Here we report a case of sinonasal schwannoma in a 35-year-old man who presented with a history of nasal blockage since two years. The mass was removed successfully without any postoperative complication and there was no recurrence within a year of follow up.
