Abstract: The benign tumours of the tongue are far less common than the malignant ones. Among bening tumours, Papilloma, fibroma, adenoma, mucous cyst, lymphangioma are the tumours most frequently encountered. Neurofibroma of the tongue is rare. A review of the available literature records only 37 cases of tumours of Nerve sheath origin of tongue. The rarity of lingual benign tumours and their distinctive histopathological features have prompted us to report this case.
