A rare case of benign diaphragmatic schwannoma in a 50-year-old woman is reported. The 8-cm tumor was located in the right diaphragm. This well-circumscribed tumor highly depressed the liver. Complete extirpation of the tumor was performed, and pathology examination revealed that the benign schwannoma had originated from the diaphragm.
