Schwannomas are relatively rare neoplasm and even rarer in the pediatric age group. The nerve sheath tumors originating from the nerves of the neck are extremely rare. We report a 4-year-old girl presenting with a history of an asymptomatic neck swelling for 6 months. The child was meticulously evaluated with imaging and fine-needle aspiration cytology. Complete surgical excision was done, and the histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis. The child was completely recovered without any morbidity. Here, we present this case of schwannoma as it is rarely seen in the pediatric age group where the child was recovered completely. Hence, there is a possibility for complete cure and without complications of schwannoma in the neck of a child after complete excision of the tumor.
