Clinical, pathological, and immunohistochemical analysis of Schwannoma in oral cavity: a case report
A schwannoma is a slow-growing benign neoplasm of the peripheral nerves composed of Schwann cells. Pathologically, is characterized by solid, subcutaneous, asymptomatic lesions. Histologically, it is made of prototypes of cellular organization called Antoni A and Antoni B. The most common site for its occurrence is the tongue, followed by the palate, the floor of the mouth, the buccal mucosa, the lips, and the mandible. This article describes the case of a 55-year-old woman presenting with a firm, nodular, encapsulated mass in the sub mucous area of the vestibular zone behind the right cheek. The clinical, pathological, and immunohistochemical analysis showed that this was a case of intraoral schwannoma
