Traumatic neuromas are relatively rare entities that characteristically arise following surgery or trauma. In this report, a case of a traumatic neuroma of the mental nerve following chin augmentation is described. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a well-defined oval mass. Part of the lesion was removed and histopathological examination confirmed the lesion to be a traumatic neuroma.
