In Ayurveda Sushruta explained the concept of Arbuda (Tumour) in Sushrut Samhita Nidansthan. Arbuda has developed anywhere in the body due to mamsa dushti by vitiated dosha. We are reporting an unusual case of Arbuda at Greeva region (Ancient Schwannoma at the posterior triangle of the neck) that remains asymptomatic for many years.
Schwannoma is a tumour that develops from schwann cells (Nerve sheath). The diagnosis was based on Histopathology report. Surgical removal is usually curative. The asymptomatic character of the tumour and slow evolution remain an essential factor in diagnosis delays. This tumour has a good prognosis with low recurrence rate and potential for malignant transformation.
