Neurofibroma is a tumor of nerve tissue origin. It is an uncommon benign tumor of the oral cavity. It generally appears as a part of syndrome, neurofibromatosis type 1, i.e., Von Recklinghausen's disease of skin. Oral neurofibroma as a solitary lesion is very uncommon. Few sporadic cases have been reported on tongue and submandibular gland. On rare occasions, the tumor can arise centrally within bone. This article presents a case of variation in the observed characteristics of neurofibroma being present centrally within maxillary alveolus and with no relation to neurofibromatosis. A discussion of its clinical, radiological, and histological features and a review of the same are included.
