Abstract

Schwannoma (Neurilemmoma) is a benign nerve sheath tumor that is composed entirely of well differentiated Schwann cells. It is important to highlight that the Schwannoma is usually found in the head and neck, and rarely in the oral cavity. They are usually asymptomatic, do not recur, and malignant transformation is rare. Here we report an extremely rare case of schwannoma of mental nerve in anterior region of the jaw since past three months. Complete excision of the mass was performed under General Anesthesia with no inadvertent complications.
