Neurilemmoma is a benign neoplasm which arises from the schwann cell of the peripheral nerve sheath. It is most common in upper extremity but occur rarely in hand. In literature, it was reported that only 1% of the neurilemmoma occurred in hand. We presented two cases of neurilemmoma in the hand enucleated microscopically resulted in good outcomes with a review of the literature. In the case which the neurilemmoma is large and located interior of the nerve, microscopic enucleation is considered as a good surgical treatment method which prevents the damage to the nerve and reduces the scar formation and adhesion of surrounding tissue.
