Elephantiasis neuromatosa is the most impressive manifestation of neurofibromatosis type-1 (NF-1). We report a case of NF-1 who presented with elephantiasis neuromatosa of his right leg. Cross-sectional imaging not only assists in the correct diagnosis but also aids in imaging the vasculature of a plexiform neurofibroma, which is essential for proper surgical planning.
