We present a rare case of a benign tumor of the tonsil in a 49-year-old woman. The tumor was excised in its entirety, and the patient's postoperative course was uneventful. No evidence of recurrence was detected during follow-up. Although some sporadic cases of tonsillar schwannoma have been reported, to the best of our knowledge this is only the second case of a solitary neurofibroma of the palatine tonsil to be reported in the English-language literature.
