Bottom Line: Of these, approximately 1-12% occurs intraorally.The intrabony lesion accounts for less than 1% of the central neoplasms.Thus, confirming the diagnosis of intraosseous schwannoma.

ABSTRACT
Schwannoma is a benign, encapsulated, perineural tumor that arises from the Schwann cells. Approximately 25% of the reported cases originate from the head and neck region. Of these, approximately 1-12% occurs intraorally. The intrabony lesion accounts for less than 1% of the central neoplasms. We report a rare case of intraosseous schwannoma in an 8-year-old male patient characteristically originating from the mental nerve. Radiographic examination followed by histopathological evaluation was further confirmed by immunohistochemical markers, S-100 protein, and GFAP that stained intensely positive for the tumor. Thus, confirming the diagnosis of intraosseous schwannoma.

Figure 2: Photograph showing swelling from lower left lateral incisor to first permanent molar

Mentions: Intra-oral examination revealed a smooth, firm, nontender, nonpulsatile, nonreducible, noncompressible, nonfluctuant swelling with ulcerated surface (due to trauma from antagonist teeth) extending from lower left lateral incisor to first permanent molar. Expansion of both buccal and lingual cortical plates and mobility of regional teeth was also present [Figure 2].
