Neurofibromatosis, first described by Von Recklinghausen in 1882, is characterized by multiple areas of pigmentation in association with tissue overgrowth of nerve sheath and fibrous tissue elements. We experienced a case of neurofibromatosis with megalencephaly in a 12-years old boy. A brief review of the related literature is given.
Key Words: Neurofibromatosis, Megalencephaly.
