  • A seven centimeter supra-renal mass was discovered in a 62-year old patient who presented with gross hematuria and a superficial bladder tumor. The supra-renal mass was resected laparoscopically and the final pathology revealed a benign schwannoma. The epidemiology, diagnostic features and treatment options for this rare peripheral nerve sheath tumor are reviewed.
