Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a distinct condition with a multitude of clinical manifestations. It has been classified recently into two subtypes, NF1 and NF2. NF1 is an autosomal dominant disorder, affecting about 1 in every 3000-4000 persons from all races and from both the genders. We present here, a case of 36 year old male NF1, who was associated with multiple papulo-nodular lesions involving the left eye optic nerve, presenting as optic nerve pathway glioma.
