Neurilemmoma of Retromolar Region in the Oral Cavity.

Rathore AS, Srivastava D, Narwal N, Shetty DC - Case Rep Dent (2015)

Bottom Line: Neurilemmoma also known as schwannoma is benign nerve sheath tumor rarely occurring in the oral cavity.It presents as encapsulated, slow growing, solitary, smooth-surfaced, usually asymptomatic tumor.We report a case of 70-year-old male with well-defined mass on left retromolar region which was painless and slow growing.

ABSTRACT
Neurilemmoma also known as schwannoma is benign nerve sheath tumor rarely occurring in the oral cavity. Only 1% of all extracranial schwannomas show that intraoral occurrence with tongue is the commonest site and retromolar region is the least common site. It presents as encapsulated, slow growing, solitary, smooth-surfaced, usually asymptomatic tumor. We report a case of 70-year-old male with well-defined mass on left retromolar region which was painless and slow growing. Diagnosis is made by histological examination and immunohistochemistry analysis to confirm the neural tissue origin of the lesion. The treatment is complete surgical excision of the lesion without recurrence.

fig2: CBCT panorama view reveals heterogeneous soft tissue mass in left retromolar region.

Mentions: A 70-year-old male patient presented with complaint of swelling in lower left back tooth region for 1 year. The swelling was gradually increasing in size. On clinical examination a 3 × 3 cm sized mass was present on left retromolar region of normal mucosal colour (Figure 1), smooth surface, soft in consistency, tender on palpation, and relatively mobile. Rest of the oral cavity was normal. His general condition and nutritional status were good. The patient was otherwise healthy and had no significant past medical history and no other symptoms; his family history was also unremarkable. Clinically the lesion appeared to be benign soft tissue neoplasm and provisional diagnosis of intraoral lipoma was suggested. The complete blood count gave results within normal limits. Cone beam computer tomography revealed heterogeneous lesion in left buccomasseteric region extending into left sided retromolar region (Figures 2 and 3).
