Abstract

Nearly 45% of all neurilemmoma occur in the head and neck area, but only 1% have an intraoral origin. The authors report two cases of uncommon neurilemmoma of the tongue. Both of them presented with a mass on the lateral border of the tongue, which was noted several days before. The lesions of tongue appeared as smooth-surfaced, well-circumscribed mass. They were excised under general anesthesia and diagnosed as neurilemmoma on histopathologic examination.
