Neurofibromas (NFs) are benign tumors arising from peripheral nerves. Although common in other head and neck sites, they have rarely been reported in the oral cavity. A 55-year-old male presented with a slowly progressive swelling in the hard palate, which was completely excised. Histopathological examination revealed a NF, which was confirmed by immunohistochemical staining for S-100. The differential diagnosis of NF should be kept in mind while evaluating a swelling arising from the hard palate. The clinical features, types, diagnosis, pathology, and treatment of NF are discussed.
