We report an exceptional case of large cystic Schwannoma of peroneal nerve causing foot drop. The clinical, radiological and electrophysiological characteristics are discussed. The cyst was surgically removed. Careful detachment and decompression of the nerve fibers was followed by gradual recovery from neurological deficit in six months. Histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of cystic Schwannoma. There is no local recurrence in more than two years follow-up.
