Abstract
Neurofibromatosis type I(NF-1) is an autosomal dominant neurocutaneous syndrome characterized by cafe-au-lait spots, optic glioma, skeletal dysplasia, and iris hamartoma. Mesenteric plexiform neurofibromas(PNF) have been rarely reported in NF-1, especially in children. We report a case of radiologically suspected mesenteric PNF along the celiac axis in an 8-year-old boy who had cafe-au-lait spots and a family history of maternal NF-1.
Key Words: Neurofibromatosis Type 1, Neurofibroma, Plexiform
