Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominant, multisystem disorder. In NF1, involvement of vagus nerve can occur in the form of neurofibroma. A few cases of neurofibroma of thoracic vagus nerve have been reported while neurofibroma of cervical vagus nerve with NF1 is quite rare. A 19-year-old male came with complaints of decreased vision of both eyes and right sided drooping of eyelid since childhood. He was diagnosed as having NF1 with neurofibroma of right cervical vagus nerve.
