Abstract

An intraoral (buccal) mass in a 6-year-old child was found to be a benign plexiform (multinodular) neurilemoma by fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy cytology and histologic examination of the excised specimen. Clinical and pathological features of these rare tumors are reviewed, and the capacity of FNA to guide surgical planning in the pediatric population is emphasized..
