The principal malignancy of peripheral nerves is malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST), which is common in soft tissue of the lower extremities. Its occurrence in the head and neck region is about 10-20%, which makes it a rare entity. Intraosseous MPNST is rare in the literature. Here, we discuss the case report of de novo occurrence of MPNST in the mandible of a 25-year-old female patient.
