In this brief report, we have described a rare case of schwannoma of the parotid gland in a young female who presented to us with a 3 cm diameter parotid swelling. The fine-needle aspiration cytology showed small fascicles, clusters and discrete spindle-shaped cells with long wavy nuclei. The cytological diagnosis of schwannoma of the parotid gland was offered and later confirmed by excision and histopathology.
