Intra-abdominal schwannoma is a rare tumor entity. Although often detected incidentally, its diagnosis and surgical planning are difficult-as with all intramural intra-abdominal tumors. Puncturing is often not satisfying due to the inhomogeneous proliferation rates of different regions of the tumor. We describe the procedure using the example of a gastric schwannoma that was found incidentally. The leading symptom was perforation of a peptic stomach ulcer.
