Abstract:
Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is a genetic disorder commonly associated with an increased risk for development of malignancy, including skin cancers. Herein we describe a case of invasive melanoma occurring in a patient with NF1 and discuss the association between these two diseases, highlighting the importance of comparative clinical and dermoscopic approaches in this category of patients in which the detection of melanoma can be difficult because of the presence of multiple skin tumors.
