AB : The authors have observed a rare case of neurofibroma in 13 year old male who came to the Infirmary of Dental Col lege of Seoul National University because of painless severe swelling of approximately 11 years' duration in the left ma xillofacial region and blindness of the left eye about 3 years' duration.
As a result of interpretating the serial roentgenograms including tomograms and microscopic findings, we have obtained the following conclusions;
1. Neurofibroma of the patient occurred about 2 years of age.
2. The familial tendency of the disease has been noted.
3. The growth pattern of the disease was slow, and roentgenographic images revealed severe destruction of bone with irr egular borders.
4. The neurofibroma was encapsulated but Verocay body and palisading effect of cells were not seen in the microscopic picture.
