Neurofibromas (NFs) are benign, soft, pink, neuromesenchymal tumors that can be solitary or multiple. Solitary tumors are not associated with systemic findings. Multiple NFs are associated with neurofibromatosis types I and II, both neurocutaneous disorders with important systemic manifestations including malignancies. Plexiform NFs are seen in patients with neurofibromatosis type I.
