Plexiform neurofibroma occur in neurofibromatosis type I. They are flat lesions of moderate size consisting of diffuse soft tissue or nerve enlargement. The lesions tend to follow the course of a nerve and may involve the skin, subcutaneous tissue, deep planes and may even cause distortion of bone growth. These lesions may be a considerable source of disfigurement and/or functional disability.
