  • Endotracheal neurofibroma in neurofibromatosis type 1: an unusual manifestation EUROPEAN RADIOLOGY Willmann, J. K., Weishaupt, D., Kestenholz, P. B., Von Smekal, A., Marincek, B. 2002; 12 (1): 190-192


    Tracheal involvement is an extremely rare manifestation in patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1). We present a 33-year-old women with NF-1 suffering from progressive dyspnea. Multislice spiral CT revealed a neurofibroma located within the trachea with intratracheal extension. To our knowledge, this is the first report of an intratracheal neurofibroma which has been documented by CT. This indicates that multislice spiral CT allows accurate demonstration of localization and extent of this rare manifestation of neurofibromas.
