Oral physicians may encounter tumors of neural origin in the orofacial region. Solitary neurofibroma is a rare benign nonodontogenic tumor which may present either as a solitary lesion or as part of the generalized syndrome of neurofibromatosis or von Recklinghausen's disease of the skin. Clinically, oral neurofibromas present as pedunculated or sessile slow-growing painless nodules. Due to their benign, painless, slow-growing nature, they resemble various other lesions and can present a diagnostic challenge. We present a case of neurofibroma of the palate presenting as a sessile nodule in a 38-year-old female that was treated by excision using diode laser along with a relevant review of the literature.
