A 47-year-old male with a solid, previously cystic tumor in the subphrenic part of the liver consulted for surgery. Laparotomy showed a well-circumscribed tumor originating from the diaphragm, which made a significant depression in the liver. Complete removal of the tumor was achieved. Pathologic examination led to a diagnosis of neurilemmoma originating from the diaphragm.
