Schwannoma is relatively uncommon, slow-growing benign tumors. It is a benign nerve sheath tumor composed of Schwann cells, which normally produce the insulating myelin sheath covering peripheral nerves. Schwannoma of the head and neck account for 25–40% of all cases. However, intra-oral schwannoma account for only 1% of all head and neck tumors. Here we report a rare tumour of lingual Schwannoma in a 28 year old male patient which presented as a slow growing asymptomatic mass at the tip of the tongue. The mass was excised and the histopathology study of the lesion showed Schwannoma of tongue.
Keywords: Schwannoma, Benign, Tongue.
