Schwannoma is an extremely rare tumor of auricle. We are presenting a rare case of auricular schwannoma, perhaps the fifth in world literature, with traumatic etiology. Twenty-five years old female presented with swelling left pinna since 6 years following ear piercing. She desires surgery for cosmetic reasons only. Swelling was excised under local anesthesia and sent for histopathological examination. HPE report was suggestive of nerve sheath tumor. No recurrence has reported so far in followup of 9 months period.
