Abstract

The traumatic neuroma is uncommon in the mouth. Clinically, the majority of traumatic neuromas are painless, but may give rise to neuralgic pain. The traumatic neuroma is most often diagnosed in the adult of life. They are found as small nodules in the tissues and surgical excision is curative. Four cases of traumatic neuroma was found from the files of the Department of Oral Pathology at Chosun University School of Dentistry by a 20-year retrospective study. 3 cases were male and one was female. The chief complaint of the four patients was facial asymmetry, numbness, sharp pain, and masticatory difficulty, respectively. Of the our patients, 3 cases were 55, 56, and 65 years old, respectively and one was 7 years old. Our patients were treated by surgical excision. No recurrences have been found.
