The term neurofibromatosis (NF) relates to two different autosomatic dominant nosological entities of genetic origin. We distinguish NF-1, which belongs to relatively frequent congenital diseases and NF-2, which occurs rarely. The NF-1-related lesions may appear predominantly as nodes localised within the bony face and neck. The choice of surgical treatment is debatable (often extensive perfusion of the tumour, wound difficult to heal). The arguments for such treatment include impairments of physiological functions caused by the tumour or possible malignancy (sarcoma). The authors present the case of 30-year old women with NF-1.
