Schwannoma is a rare benign encapsulated tumor derived from neural sheath cells. The tumor is more common in the head and neck regions and the extremities. Its location in the vulvovaginal region is a rare phenomenon with a few reported cases worldwide. We report a case of a large vulvar schwannoma occurring in an 18-year-old woman, primigravidae at 35 weeks gestation. The ulcerated tumor mass which measured 10.5 × 7 × 6.5 cm and weighed 249.2 grams was located on the right labium majus with extension into the vagina. The tumor evoked strong immunohistochemical reactivity to S-100. There was no evidence of recurrence after several weeks of excision of the neoplasm.
