Benign schwannomas of the nasal cavity are rare. When they do occur, their clinical presentation is variable, and some are fairly vascular. We report the case of a 17-year-old boy who presented with epistaxis associated with a unilateral nasal mass that extended into the nasopharynx. The tumor was removed via a transpalatal approach. In most such cases, a clinical diagnosis of angiofibroma is made. In this case, however, histopathologic examination identified the lesion as a schwannoma.
