Intramammary benign solitary schwannomas are extremely rare. We report a case where the fine needle aspirate of an intramammary schwannoma revealed hemorrhagic paucicellular smear with only one cellular clump resembling the Antoni A and Antoni ? areas found on histopathology. Fine needle aspiration also resulted in hemorrhagic infarction of the neoplasm. Importance of recognition of a benign solitary schwannoma and clues to diagnosis are discussed.
