A case of an incidentally found retroperitoneal schwannoma is reported. A schwannoma is a rare, benign tumor affecting the soft tissues and the viscera. In the presented case, the US and CT images suggested the nature of this benign tumor. Angiography confirmed the mass effect on the portal vein and subsequently the potential risk of portal thrombosis. The diagnosis was confirmed at surgery.
