Abstract

Neurofibroma is one of the major benign nerve sheath tumor characterized by proliferation of Schwann cells, fibroblasts, perineural fibroblasts, and axons. It can be seen as a solitary lesion or in the context of neurofibromatosis. It has been occasionally reported that tactile-like corpuscle is found in neurofibroma and there is only one report about fatty change in neurofibroma. We present an unusual case of neurofibroma occurring in the occipital scalp of a 66-year-old woman, which has tactile-like corpuscles and fatty cell infiltration.
