Background: Schwannomas are benign neoplasms that originate from Schwann cells of the neurilemma. They are rarely seen in the digestive tract and are difficult to biopsy. Therefore, advanced diagnoses are very difficult. Materials: We describe a duodenal papilla mass that underwent papilla local excision. Postoperative pathology indicated that the tumor was micro-capsule/reticular schwannoma. However, Common Bile Duct (CBD) stones occurred after the surgery.
Results: The patient was cured after the Choledochojejunostomy was performed lived without tumor recurrence or any discomfort for 4 years.
Conclusion: It is the first report that schwannoma is found in duodenal papilla and local resection may be an appropriate way to be selected. Correct postoperative guidance could improve the success rate of surgery.
