[Neurofibroma of the tongue].
An Otorrinolaringol Ibero Am. 1990; 17(3):287-95.AO

Abstract

Neural sheath tumors are rarely encountered in the oral cavity. The most common location is the tongue and thereafter, the sites in order of frequency are the buccal mucosa, the floor of the mouth, palate, lips and gingiva. The need to differentiate between Neurofibroma and Schwannoma is imperative in as much as the first one shows a much greater propensity for malignant transformation when associated with von Recklinghausen's neurofibromatosis. We present a case of Neurofibroma localized in the tongue which appeared as a sessile nodule of 0.3 X 0.4 cm. After extensive surgical ablation there was no further recurrence in 5 years follow-up.
