Dermatol Sinica 5: 163-170, 1987

Cutaneous segmental neurofibromatosis is characterized by limitation of cafe-au-lait sprts and/or neurofibromas (and perhaps other related tumors) to a given region of the body, lack of family history and absence of generalized neurofibromatosis. Three cases in addition to 14 reported cases in literature were reviewed and discussed. These three cases were male and the neurofibromas were localized at the right side of the nape, right lower abdomen and right chest wall respectively. None of them showed the features of generalized neurofibromatosis.
