Abstract

Schawnnoma or neurilemmoma is a benign slow-growing neoplasm of Schwann cells that can arise from any cranial, peripheral or autonomic nerve. The involvement of the oral cavity is extremely rare. We present a case of a schwannoma lesion in the soft palate in a young girl. This report introduces the clinical aspects of schwannoma of the soft palate, and the correlation between the histopathological features and the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) features of this lesion.
