Abstract
Numb chin syndrome, or mental neuropathy is a rare sensory neuropathy characterized by abnormal sensation such as hypoesthesia, paresthesia, or dysesthesia in the chin and lower lip innervated by the mental nerve. Sensory neuropathy of mental nerve is somewhat familiar to dentists because it can occur following nerve damage by trauma or dental treatment such as implant surgery or third molar extraction. It can also result from dental causes including abscess or osteomyelitis. However, it can be the first sign of the systemic disease or malignancy if it is not related to dental causes. In this study, we present the case of a patient who present with hypoesthesia and pain in chin area without other symptoms and is later diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
