Schwannomas are benign tumors of peripheral and cranial nerves. They occur frequently in head and neck region. Schwannomas occurring in the axillary region is extremely rare. Cystic change is common in longstanding cases and in such cases aspiration may yield only macrophages leading to misdiagnosis of a case. We report one such case of solitary axillary schwannoma with extensive cystic degeneration, which was misdiagnosed on cytology, later confirmed by histological examination.
