Oral manifestations of neurofibromatosis have been reported in only 4% to 7% of affected persons. All oral tissues, hard and soft, have been reported to be affected with tumors, but the tongue has been the most common site. We report on the oral and radiographic findings in twenty-two patients with neurofibromatosis. The prevalence of oral and radiographic findings in our sample was 72%, which is much higher than previously reported. The five most common findings are oral neurofibromas, enlarged fungiform papillae, intrabony lesions, wide inferior alveolar canals, and enlarged mandibular foramina.
