Neurofibromas are benign tumours originating from the nerve sheath. Amongst the histological variants, plexiform types are considered exclusive. These are poorly circumscribed, locally invasive and may exhibit sarcomatous potential. Plexiform neurofibromas are key features of Neurofibromatosis â€“ 1 and their solitary intraâ€“oral presentation is uncommon. The following case report describes a unique case of an isolated solitary plexiform neurofibroma of the maxillary anterior gingival region in a middle aged female patient.
