Neurofibroma is a benign neoplasm of non-odontogenic origin arising from peripheral nerves. It may occur as a solitary lesion or as a part of the generalized syndrome of neurofibromatosis or von Recklinghausen's disease of the skin. It occurs rarely in the head and neck region; intraorally, it affects the tongue, buccal mucosa, and vestibular area, with the posterior mandible being the most common intraosseous location. Clinically, oral neurofibromas usually appear as pedunculated or sessile nodules with slow growth and are usually asymptomatic. The diagnosis can be confirmed by histological examination. Treatment is surgical with excellent prognosis. For illustration, a rare case of a solitary neurofibroma in the mandible is presented.
