Tumors occurring in the submandibular space are infrequent among pediatric patients, and benign peripheral nerve tumors in this region are exceptionally rare. This study describes the uncommon occurrence of a schwannoma in the submandibular space in a child and describes its management. A 7-year-old child presented with a gradually enlarging swelling over a 7-month period in the submandibular region, clinically resembling a salivary gland tumor. There were no associated marginal mandibular, lingual, or hypoglossal nerve palsy. The mass was excised completely, and histopathological examination revealed it to be a schwannoma. It is appropriate to consider benign peripheral nerve tumors, such as schwannoma, in the differential diagnosis of submandibular space tumors in children.

Keywords: Submandibular gland neoplasms, neurilemmoma, salivary gland neoplasms

Submandibular boşlukta meydana gelen tümörler pediatrik hastalar arasında sık görülmez ve bu bölgedeki benign periferik sinir tümörleri son derece nadirdir. Bu çalışmada, bir çocukta submandibular alanda nadir görülen bir schwannoma olgusu ve tedavisi anlatılmaktadır. Yedi yaşında bir çocuk, submandibular bölgede 7 aylık bir süre içinde giderek büyüyen ve klinik olarak tükürük bezi tümörüne benzeyen bir şişlik ile başvurdu. Kitle ile ilişkili marjinal mandibular, lingual veya hipoglossal sinir felci yoktu. Kitle tamamen eksize edildi ve histopatolojik incelemede schwannoma olduğu görüldü. Çocuklarda submandibular boşluk tümörlerinin ayırıcı tanısında schwannoma gibi benign periferik sinir tümörlerinin düşünülmesi gerekmektedir.
