The neurofibroma is a benign tumor of nerve tissue origin derived from cells that constitute the nerve sheath. It is seen as a solitary lesion or as part of a generalized syndrome of neurofibromatosis (von Reckli nghausen disease of the skin). The skin is the most common site for neurofibromas. Oral lesions though found in a minority of patients with the generalized syndrome are not uncommon. The tongue and buccal mucosa are the most common sites. On rare occasions , the tumor can arise centrally within the bone. The intraosseous maxillary location is even rarer. We present a case of neurofibroma that presented in the maxilla of a young girl.
