Neurofibroma of the soft palate, an extremely rare tumour, is probably not yet reported in the literature. We report the first case of an isolated neurofibroma of the soft palate not associated with von Recklinghausen's disease (VRD), which is also, probably, the first reported case of neurofibroma of the soft palate. The tumour was completely removed from the soft palate after performing tracheostomy, necessitated due to difficulties in intubation.
