Schwannoma is a benign neoplasia of the peripheral nerve sheath. Its localization in the gastrointestinal tract, and in particular in the esophagus, is very rare.

We report the case of an 11 year old patient with neurofibromatosis, type 2, who underwent surgical excision of a plexiform schwannoma of the esophagus.
