Schwannoma or neurilemmoma is a neurogenic tumor. Intraoral schwannoma is rare and intraosseous schwannoma involving maxilla is even rare. We present one such rare case of maxillary sinus schwannoma extending to the nasal cavity, infratemporal fossa in a 22-year-old male. Wide excision of the lesion with subtotal maxillectomy of the right side was done using Weber–Fergusson approach. The patient made a good postoperative recovery. The relevant literature on the presentation, radiology, and management of schwannoma of maxillary sinus is discussed.
