Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Swellings and tumours within the oral cavity are a common finding, however, benign intra-oral schwannoma or neurolemma is relatively uncommon, especially in younger patients. Involvement of the palate is a rare presentation although there have been a few reported cases relating to the lingual and other tissues. This paper reviews intra-oral schwannomas and presents a case of such a tumour of the soft palate in a paediatric patient and discusses the presenting features, differential diagnoses, along with the management of the condition.
