Schwannomas are benign neoplasms originating from the neural sheath and occuring most often in the soft tissue of the head and neck region. Intraoral neoplasms are uncommon. We report a case of schwannoma arising from the left side of the tongue of an 81-year-old man. The clinical presentation, light microscopic findings, and immunohistochemical features are described. The diode laser 830 ± 10 nm treatment is discussed.
