Multiple schwannomas, especially of Ancient type, on the plantar aspect of the foot are very rare. We report one such case of sporadic multiple ancient type schwannomas involving medial plantar nerve in an adult female patient. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of right foot along with Nerve Conduction Study (NCS) was done in preoperative evaluation. MRI showed the lesion to be a neurogenic tumor arising from medial plantar nerve. Patient underwent excision of these lesions which later proved to be ancient type of multiple schwannomas on histopathological examination. The patient recovered very well without any residual neurological deficit of medial plantar nerve.
