      Neurilemmomas arising within the jawbones are rare. Most occur in the mandible as slowly growing enlargements that may or may not be painful; radiographically, they are large single or multiloculated radiolucencies mimicking other benign jaw lesions. The histology is characteristic, with Antoni A and B tissues and a well-defined capsule. This article reports an unencapsulated neurilemmoma of the mandible and reviews and summarizes the features of the central neurilemmomas in the literature.
