We report a case of a benign neurilemmoma arising from the right mental nerve. Schwannomas are rare neurogenic tumours that originate from Schwann cells of the peripheral nervous system. Frequent locations are the head and neck region. Most of the tumours occur in the soft tissue whereas intraosseous schwannomas are rare. This case report deals with a young patient who was referred to our hospital with an unidentified fast-growing tumour located mainly in the premolar region of the right mandible. The tumour presented as an expansive, unilocular, well defined, radiolucent lesion on orthopantomography. No expansion of the mandibular canal could be seen. Computerized tomography scans of the mandible helped to identify the solid nature of the tumour. A biopsy was necessary to make the final diagnosis and the tumour was then excised surgically. Postoperative magnetic resonance imaging scans and a histological examination of the surgical specimen showed no signs of neurofibromatosis type 2.
