ABSTRACT
Schwannomas are benign, encapsulated, slowly-growing tumor of the developing neural sheath’s Schwann cells. Aetiology is unknown. They are often seen in the head and neck region. Only 1% of them are encountered in the oral cavity. Tongue is the most common location in the oral cavity region. A 16-year-old male patient admitted to our clinic with a history of slowly growing swelling on the tip of the tongue. Diagnosis was confirmed by excisional biopsy. There was no recurrence in follow-up of 1 year after the operation. Because of its rarity in oral cavity specially in pediatric age, the case is presented.
ÖZET
Schwannomalar periferik sinirlerin kılıfından kaynaklanan iyi huylu tümörlerdir. Etiyolojisi bilinmemektedir. Sıklıkla baş-boyun yerleşimi gösterirler. Sadece %1'ine oral kavitede rastlanır. Oral kavitede, en sık dilde yerleşim gösterir. 16 yaşındaki erkek hasta dilinde 1 ay içinde meydana gelen ve büyüme gösteren kitle ile başvurdu. Eksizyonel biyopsi ile histopatolojik tanısı doğrulandı. Ameliyattan sonraki 1 yıllık izlemde nüks görülmedi. Oral kavite schwannomalarının özellikle çocuk yaş grubunda nadir görülmesi ve oral kavite kitlelerinin, ayırıcı tanısında düşünülmesi gerektiği nedeniyle sunulmuştur.
