Schwannoma, a benign nerve sheath tumor is relatively rare in occurrence and their intraosseous location is even rarer counting for less than 1% of all benign primary bone tumors. In this report, we present a case of intramandibular schwannoma arising from the inferior alveolar nerve in a 60-yearold woman who presented with mandibular pain and right lower lip paresthesia evolving for seven months. The panoramic X-ray revealed a well-circumscribed and homogeneously radiolucent image. Treatment involved complete excision of the tumor while preserving the nerve bundles. The lesion was examined histopathologically and a final diagnosis of schwannoma arising from the inferior alveolar nerve was made. The patient regained normal sensory function six months after the operation at a two-year follow-up after surgery, there was no evidence of tumor recurrence. The aim of this report is to add information to the existing sparse literature on intraosseous schwannomas of the jaw.
