When soft tissue neoplasms are detected, especially in young patients with minimal neurological complaints, it is necessary to conduct an ultrasound examination to diagnose a possible tumor of peripheral nerves. This article describes the features of the diagnosis of schwannoma, taking into account its ultrasound signs.
