Abstract

Neurofibroma(NF) is one of the common well known autosomal dominant inheritable entity with a prevalence of one per 3000 people. Clinically, there are two types of NF:NF 1 with 90% occurrence along with 7 subtypes and NF2. It is a genetic disorder and benign peripheral nerve sheath tumor. It has a neural origin with presence of café –au-lait spots along with multiple nodules over the skin and all over the body. It might be associated with bone malformation and sometimes the central nervous systems is also involved. Diagnosis of neurofibroma is based on clinical criteria. The frequency of oral manifestations is debated in the literature. Some authors report a frequency of 4-7% of cases, whereas others suggest that these manifestations are present in up to 72% of cases. Here the purpose of this case report is to review the disease with intraoral clinical and radiological findings found in a patient having a bizzare radiographic finding of Intraoral Neurofibroma (NF).
