Nerve sheath myxoma (neurothekeoma) in the tongue of a newborn

Peñarrocha M, Bonet J, Minguez JM, Vera F. Nerve sheath myxoma (neurothekeoma) in the tongue of a newborn. Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol Endod. 2000 Jul;90(1):74-7.


Nerve sheath myxoma is a benign peripheral nerve sheath tumor that rarely occurs in the oral cavity; experience with these lesions is therefore limited. The lesion described in this report appeared clinically as a gradually enlarging, painless growth arising on the tongue of a newborn girl. Microscopically, the lesion was characterized by nodules of spindle-shaped cells with abundant myxoid stroma. Immunohistochemical studies were consistent with a nerve sheath neoplasm.
