Neurofibroma (NF) is a benign tumor of the peripheral nervous system. Head and neck NF are generally located in the soft tissue. The tumour is rarely seen intraosseously and most commonly such tumours are seen as solitary lesions, rather than part of neurofibromatosis. The following report describes a case of an intraosseous neurofibroma in a 45-year-old male located in the left posterior mandible. The diagnosis was made based on the clinical findings, radio graphical features, histopathology, and immunohistochemistry. A literature review has been done on intraosseuos neurofibromas located in the jaws, with a discussion on the possible differential diagnosis.
