Abstract

We report herein the case of a 48-year-old man with malignant schwannoma of the intrathoracic vagus nerve associated with von Recklinghausen's disease. Malignant intrathoracic vagal tumors are extremely rare and to our knowledge, only four other cases have been documented in the literature, none of which were associated with von Recklinghausen's disease.
