Schwannomas are benign tumors derived from Schwann cells. They are comparatively rare on scalp and easily mistaken for tumors of hair. Trichilemmal cysts are common over scalp and present as dermal or subcutaneous growths over scalp. We present a solitary schwannoma of scalp clinically mimicking trichilemmal cyst. The tumor was surgically excised and the same was confirmed by histopathology.
