Neurilemmoma (Schwannoma) is a benign tumour of neuroectodermal origin. It usually occurs as a asymptomatic, solitary, smooth-surfaced and slow growing lesion, emerging at any age, with as such, no gender prelidiction. Occurring as a common tumour in the head and neck region, its intraoral presentation is very rare. Here, we are reporting a rare case of intraoral schwannoma of the posterior palate which occurred in a 34-year-old female patient who had chief complaint of a painless, slow growing swelling on posterior palate.
