Nerve sheath myxoma is a benign tumor that rarely
occurs in the lip area. In this article, a 28-year-old
woman admitted with a complaint of painless swelling
in the upper lip is presented. The lesion was
excised, and histopathological and immunohistochemical
examinations were performed. There are
only five reported cases in the available literature.
Although very rare, nerve sheath myxoma should
be considered in the differential diagnosis of lip
mass and widely excised to avoid local recurrence.
The patient is under clinical control with no signs of
recurrence after 16 months.
