Schwannoma is a benign encapsulated slow-growing tumor that originates from Schwann cells of the peripheral nerve sheath. It usually occurs in the head and neck; however, it is rare in the oral cavity. The tongue is the most common site of intraoral schwannomas, followed by the floor of the mouth, palate, gingiva, vestibular mucosa, lips and mental nerve area. We report a rare case of schwannoma in the midline of hard palate with ulcerated surface in a 21-year-old male with a two-month history of a painless swelling on his palate. Clinical, radiographic and histopathological features along with differential diagnosis and treatment are also discussed.
