Pancreatic schwannoma is a rare, well-encapsulated tumor of the pancreas. Preoperative diagnosis of this tumor is uncommon due to marked degenerative change, its rarity, and overlapping clinical and imaging features with other pancreatic neoplasms. Here, we report two cases of pancreatic schwannoma, suspected preoperatively based on their multimodal imaging features, so that enucleation was possible. Extensive pancreatic surgeries can be avoided if imaging can provide clues about the benign nature of the pancreatic masses preoperatively.
