Schwannomas are benign neoplasms with debatable etiology, which commonly arise from neural sheath Schwann cells. They are solitary, slow-growing lesions occurring at different ages especially in intraoral site. Lesions are normally asymptomatic and now and again, they are accompained by pain and paresthesia whenever seen in the intraosseous sites of the mandibles. Diagnosis of schwannoma is set up through histopathological assessment and immunohistochemical assessment, and the first line treatment includes the surgical removal of the tumor without affecting of neighboring structures. Anti-S100 protein is the most noteworthy antibody response used to recognize schwannomas. Schwannomas are known to have better prognosis, and if the lesion is totally excised, there is no chance of recurrence
