Abstract
AbstractObjective:

We report a case of benign intranodal neurilemmoma, an extremely rare tumour arising from a nerve sheath within a lymph node.

Case report:

A 67-year-old woman underwent surgery for a left-sided parotid mass. Histopathological analysis revealed a tumour arising from a lymph node within the superficial lobe of the parotid gland. The tumour demonstrated histological features of an intranodal neurilemmoma.

Conclusions:

This case represents the first report of an intranodal neurilemmoma arising within a parotid lymph node, and supports the proposal that intranodal neurilemmoma be recognised as a distinct histological entity.
