Neurofibroma of the palate.

Bharath TS, Krishna YR, Nalabolu GR, Pasupuleti S, Surapaneni S, Ganta SB - Case Rep Dent (2014)

Bottom Line: There are two distinct variants of neurofibromatosis type I and type II.We present a case of neurofibroma of the hard palate associated with neurofibromatosis type I.The diagnosis of the lesion was made based on the clinical findings, family history, histopathology, and immunohistochemistry.

ABSTRACT
Neurofibroma is a benign peripheral nerve sheath tumor comprising variable mixture of Schwann cells, perineurial-like cells, and fibroblasts. Neurofibroma may occur as solitary lesion or as part of a generalised syndrome of neurofibromatosis or very rarely as multiple neurofibromas without any associated syndrome. There are two distinct variants of neurofibromatosis type I and type II. We present a case of neurofibroma of the hard palate associated with neurofibromatosis type I. The diagnosis of the lesion was made based on the clinical findings, family history, histopathology, and immunohistochemistry. Literature was reviewed and different types of neurofibroma, their incidence and frequency in the oral cavity, its association with neurofibromatosis, clinical manifestations, histopathologic characteristics, immunohistochemical analysis, behaviour, treatment, and recurrence are discussed.

fig2: Solitary, oval, well-defined palatal swelling.

Mentions: Intraoral examination revealed a solitary, oval, well-defined pedunculated swelling in the upper right palate extending from 11, 12 attached gingiva to 16 distal region, 1 cm away from the midpalatal suture. It measures approximately 2 × 3 cm in size and is irregular in shape and mucosa over the swelling appears pink in colour (Figure 2). On palpation there was no local rise in temperature or tender, fluctuant, and variable consistency. Differential diagnosis of the intraoral swelling includes lipoma, fibroma, schwannoma, and hemangioma.
