Description Schwannoma (neurilemmoma) is a solitary, benign, truly encapsulated tumor originating from proliferating Schwann cells of nerve sheath. Though the overall incidence of Schwannoma is 25-45% in head and neck region, only 1% is seen in oral cavity. Tongue is most common in oral cavity. We report a rare case of lingual schwannoma in a 23 years old male patient who presented with painless, small, slow-growing mass over right lateral border of the tongue of three months duration. A clinical diagnosis of traumatic fibroma was made. The patient underwent complete surgical excision. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of schwannoma.
