This is plexiform Neurofibromatosis. This is benign tumor that originates from nerve sheath cells or subcutaneous peripheral nerves and can involve multiple fascicles. Massive PNF results in functional disability and disfigurement. They occur in as much as in 30% of the patients with NF type 1. Such tumours are generally present at birth and often progress during early childhood. The condition can cause disfigurement. Most cases require surgery. Complete excision is not possible due to infiltrating nature of the tumour.

I am highly thankful to dear my Kaji who posts very interesting cases, I would request him kindly tag Endocrinology too while posting the cases.

Revered sir, I will henceforth definitely will. Thanks.
