Schwannoma can be a rare cause of abdominal pain
This case report describes a 43-year-old female with persisting abdominal pain. She was examined on several occasions, but no obvious reason for the pains was found. Due to recurring of the symptoms, a computed tomography was performed, and a tumour in the thoracic wall by the lower left region of the lung could be seen. Biopsy revealed a schwannoma, and an operation was conducted successfully. After radical resection, the patient’s pains declined.
