Presacral tumors are particularly rare in the adult. Schwannomas are neurogenic neoplasms, rarely occurring in the retroperitoneum and the pelvis. Presented herein are the cases of 2 female patients with chronic pelvic pain who were discovered to have presacral schwannomas and were managed laparoscopically. Laparoscopy is a safe and efficient option in approaching benign pelvic tumors and might offer the advantage of better visualization of structures due to the magnification of laparoscopic view, especially in narrow anatomic spaces.
