Neurofibromatosis type 1 (Von Recklinghausen disease) belongs to a group of genetic disorders, and it is considered one of the most common genodermatosis. This disease negatively interferes with the quality of life and highly influences both emotional and social patients’ well-being. In this manuscript, I present a curious case of a patient who has not been adequately managed despite the presence of large cutaneous neurofibromas. This would allow the International Case Reports Journal readers to identify images of advanced stages of neurofibromatosis type 1, so it can capture the visual experience of health professionals to enrich their experience or for educational purposes.
