Intraparotid facial nerve schwannomas are rare and facial palsy because of them is even rarer. They should be kept in the differential diagnosis of parotid swellings, though preoperatively they are difficult to diagnose. We herein report a case of 30-year-old female who presented with left-sided massive preauricular swelling with facial nerve palsy, on computed tomography, there was invasion and widening of the stylomastoid foramen. This mass was diagnosed as pleomorphic adenoma on fine-needle aspiration cytology and came out to be schwannoma on histopathological examination.
