Retroperitoneal schwannoma is a rare benign tumor of the peripheral nerve Schwann sheath. We, herein, report the case of a 74-year-old woman who presented with vague abdominal pain. Computed tomography imaging revealed a retroperitoneal mass that is medial to the right kidney. The patient underwent robotic excision of the tumor with the pathology revealing schwannoma. We report this case due to the scarcity of this disease entity, especially at this location and to emphasize the indication and value of robotic technology in different pathological processes retroperitoneally.
