48. Picture of Neurofibromas
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.
