Almost always patients with multiple neurofibromatosis show cafe-au-lait macules on their skin. At times the skin macules are seen even before the appearance of the neurofibromata in childhood. The author experienced one case of neurofibromatosis in a 12-year-old boy who has no cafe-au-lait macules. Besides the clinical peculiarity of having no skin pigmentation, the histopathology of the case showed well-formed double-palisading structure, which is not common among the micro-scopical findings of neurofibromata.
