Schwannomas are benign tumors of the nerve sheath and are usually single encapsulated and slow growing in peripheral or sympathetic nervous system. In this report a 49 year-old man is presented with one year complain of abdominal pain and intermittent hematospermia. The CT scan of the abdomen showed a 60 × 65 × 60 mm mass in anterior pelvic cavity with deviation to the sacral bone, originated from nerve. Several examinations revealed neurofibroma. Due to the large size of the tumor and it's position to the pelvic nerves, to remove the mass the patient only underwent laparotomy with partial resection. Pathology tests confirmed Ancient Schwannoma with degenerative changes. Radiotherapy was done with the aim of reducing the size of the rest of tumor. In our case, schwannoma was diagnosed incidentally. The size of the tumor indicated a relatively long period from the time that tumor was generated until the time of diagnosis. Despite using paraclinical findings, a definite diagnosis of the disease was made by histopathological tests.
