ABSTRACT
Introduction: Schwannoma is a benign type of nerve sheath tumor not frequently reported in the oral cavity, representing only 1% of benign primary bone tumors of the jaws. The most common location is the posterior body and the ascending ramus of the mandible, following the path of the inferior alveolar nerve. The symphyseal location is considered exceptional. The present case is an intraosseous schwannoma located in the mandibular symphysis.
Case Report: A 31 years old male patient was referred to our department regarding a slow-growing swelling with no acute signs. Panoramic radiograph and CT scan revealed a unilocular radiolucency of 18x20x35 mm, and no involvement of the mental or the inferior alveolar nerves. The finding data suggested a benign lesion with a cystic appearance. After the surgical enucleation, the histopathological analysis reported the diagnosis of an intraosseous schwannoma. The patient did not experience any postoperative complications.
Conclusion: In encountering a symphyseal swelling, non-odontogenic lesions, such as schwannomas must be considered in the list of diagnosis.

Keywords: Intraosseous, Mandible, Neurilemmoma, Schwannoma, Symphysis
