Neurofibroma is a benign nerve sheath tumor of the peripheral nervous system. It can occur either as a sporadic form or it is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion. In its generalized and inherited form, it is known as Von-Recklinghausens disease of the nerve. Neurofibroma of the penis occurs in association with neurofibromatosis type 1. Primary isolated solitary neurofibroma of the penis is extremely rare and only 22 cases have been documented in published literature. Here we present a case of a 12 year old male child presenting with primary penile neurofibroma.
