Abstract

Multiple Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a disease of great interest because of the familial nature of the disease, the complexity of its morphology, the progressive character of its course and the numerous complications that may develop during its evolution. The authors present a late presentation of a genital NF type 1 affecting the penis and the right lower limb of a young adult.
