A case of solitary intraosseous neurofibroma of the mandible is compared to previously reported cases in the literature. The tumor is not especially painful, although cortical expansion and extension into the surrounding tissue is common. Malignant changes in the tumor are extremely rare. The great majority of these tumors can be removed through an intraoral incision, and total enucleation can be accomplished leaving an intact mandible.
