Neurofibroma is a benign tumor of nerve tissue origin, derived from the cells that constitute the nerve sheath. It is commonly found in soft tissues, but the intraosseous occurrence of solitary neurofibroma in the head and neck is comparatively rare, with the most common site being mandible. This article presents a case report of neurofibroma on the posterior right side of the mandible of a 13-year-old boy who is the youngest patient in the series along with a review of literature.
