Abstract: The use of endoscopes in oral and maxillofacial surgery has been well documented. The advantage of no external scar and minimal invasiveness makes endoscopic technique gradually more popular. This article will describe a rare case of an intraosseous inferior alveolar nerve schwannoma and its removal using endoscope. The surgical technique and preservation of the inferior alveolar nerve will be described and illustrated. The advantages and disadvantages of the approach will be discussed.
