In this report, we describe a rare case of vagus nerve schwannoma associated with esophageal cancer. A 70-year-old man visited our hospital complaining of worsening dysphagia. His upper gastrointenstinal endoscopy revealed a mass in the esophagus. A contrast-enhanced chest computed tomography also detected a 15 mm nodule attached to the tracheal membrane. This nodule was diagnosed as a metastatic lymph node. Although the primary tumor reduced after neoadjuvant chemotherapy, the nodule remained intact ; it showed fluorodeoxyglucose accumulation on positron emission tomography. We had a clinical diagnosis of stage III after neoadjuvant chemotherapy and underwent surgery. Intraoperatively, the nodule could not be detached from the right vagus nerve ; therefore, we excised the nodule along with the adjacent vagus nerve. The nodule was pathologically diagnosed as a vagus schwannoma. The nodule was not a regional lymph node metastasis of esophageal cancer. His postoperative course was uneventful, and he is currently undergoing outpatient follow-up without recurrence.
