A 24-year-old male presented to us with a slow growing, painless mass lesion in his left eye. A dome-shaped, well-defined, nontender, nodulocystic, immobile, transilluminant subscleral mass was seen in the nasal quadrant. Infiltration of ciliary body, iris, choroid, and sclera by a suprachoroidal mass of variable echogenicity was noted on B scan ultrasonography (USG). Incisional biopsy hinted toward intraocular schwanomma. Considering the infiltration seen on USG B scan, progressive increase in size, and relatively good prognosis if intervened early, a transcleral local resection was performed. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry confirmed an ancient schwannoma. Patient recovered without complications.
