Lingual schwannoma in an adolescent girl- A diagnostic challenge.J Family Med Prim Care. 2020 Mar; 9(3):1775-1777.JF
Shwannoma, a benign neurogenic neoplasm consisting of schwann cells is a slow growing solitarily found pathology. We present a case of shwannoma in a 14 year old girl and its identifying features which can be a diagnostic challenge owing to its similarity with many lesions. The patient visited our center with a nodular growth on her tongue. Transoral excision was performed and pathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis of schwannoma.
