Özet

Schwannomas are tumors of the peripheral nerves originating in the nerve sheaths that account for 1% of benign tumors located in the oral cavity. The tongue as a whole is the most common location for intraoral schwannomas to occur; however, it is quite rare to diagnose schwannoma in children. We are contributing a report of a 13-year-old child with a 1-year history of slowly growing swelling on the anterior part of corpus of the tongue. The patient complained of the disturbance to mastication and phonation. Diagnosis was confirmed by excisional biopsy. Histologic identification of Antoni A and B areas along with strong and diffuse staining with S-100 stain pathologically completed the diagnosis of schwannoma. (c) 2010 Elsevier Inc.
