INTRODUCTION: Tracheal neurilemmomas are rare among primary benign tracheal tumors and their diagnosis is always delayed due to insidious and non-specific clinical presentation.

CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of primary tracheal neurilemmoma in a 52-year-old male without any complaints. A nodule in the upper trachea was revealed by chest computed tomography (CT) during routine physical examination before admission. The mass was resected using bronchoscopic snare and confirmed as tracheal neurilemmoma histologically.
