Background: Neurofibromatosis (NF1) is an autosomal dominant, multisystem disorder. Trials are ongoing to discover and test medical treatments for the various manifestations of NF1, primarily plexiform neurofibromas, learning disabilities, and optic pathway gliomas, which are a significant cause of morbidity in these patients. Penetrance approaches 100% by age 20; if the patient has the mutation, he or she will exhibit manifestations, although expressivity is highly variable.
Objective: This case highlights the importance of early diagnosis and management in case of plexiform neurofibromatosis, to rectify conductive hearing loss and for aesthetic corrections.
Methods: Here we report a case of 22 year old female with right side conductive hearing loss with growth present over right external auditory canal.
Result: Computed tomography and histopathology revealed that this is case of plexiform neurofibromatosis which was managed by surgical excision.
Conclusion: By the help of this study, we emphasized the role of early intervention and treatment in case of plexiform neurofibromatosis to control its further growth and spread.
