Case Report Open Access


Schwannomas are benign, slow growing neoplasm that mostly arises from myelinating cells of peripheral nervous system. Intra oral schwannomas itself is rare, tongue being the commonest, but involvement of palate is a rare presentation. This is a case report of 38 years old male who presented to us with mass inside the oral cavity, difficulty in swallowing and change in voice for 3 months. As it was a large mass almost occluding three fourths oral cavity, retrograde intubation done, mass excised in toto. At this location, the clinical diagnosis was confounded by other tumours such as minor salaivary gland tumour, fibroma, tense retension cyst of soft palate. But biopsy revealed Schwannoma which is so rare.
