Abstract: Plexiform schwannomas are extremely rare in the oral cavity. We report here the case of a 3-year-old child with plexiform schwannoma located in the hard palate. The tumor presented as a slowly growing nodule of about 6 months duration, mimicking clinically a salivary gland tumor. No signs of recurrence were observed after one year of follow-up. Benign peripheral nerve and salivary gland tumors should be included in the differential diagnosis of nodular lesions occurring in children.
