Neurofibromatosis type 2 is a rare neurocutaneous syndrome characterized by the development of multiple nervous system tumors. This disorder is also called multiple inherited schwannomas, meningiomas, and ependymomas syndrome. In this report, we discuss the clinical and magnetic resonance imaging findings in a 17-year-old patient with neurofibromatosis type 2, who had extensive cranial nerves involvement (3rd–12th cranial nerves) along with spinal involvement. It is very rare to find tumors affect nearly all cranial nerves (namely 3rd–12th nerves), and their association with meningiomas and intramedullary spinal cord tumors in the same patient.
