GARCIA DE MARCOS, J.A. et al. Neurilemmomas of the oral cavity and the neck. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2004, vol.26, n.6, pp.384-392. ISSN 2173-9161.

Neurilemomas are benign neurogenic tumours, that derive from the neural sheath. Approximately 25 to 45 per cent of the extracraneal neurilemomas occur in the head and neck region. Neurilemomas usually occur between the third and the fourth decades of life. Neurilemoma is a sharply circumscribed, and usually small tumor. Clinically it manifests as a slow and gradually growing mass; microscopic examination is neccesary for diagnosis. Complete tumoral excision remains the treatment of choice and after this, they rarely recur. The aim of this article is to report a retrospective study, of nine cases, of oral cavity and neck neurilemomas, treated in our service of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, between 1997 and 2001. A series of epidemiological parameters (age, sex, location, size, symptoms, preoperative study, time between the symptom appearance and the first consultation, nerve of origin, predominant histologic pattern (Antoni A, Antoni B) and postoperative evolution) are evaluated. The review of the literature is made.
