Abstract

A case of ancient neurilemoma arising in the oral soft tissues is presented. Histologic and electron microscopic studies indicate that this tumor is, indeed, a variant of the neurilemoma and that the Schwann cell is the cell of origin. At the ultrastructural level, the bulk of the lesion is composed of numerous reduplications of basal lamina accompanying thin cytoplasmic processes and thus resembles a confluence of Verocay bodies as described in previous studies of classic neurilemomas. Heretofore unreported submicroscopic calcified spherules were observed scattered through the basal lamina material.
