An elderly patient presented with two clusters of asymptomatic fleshy and pedunculated papules. Biopsy of the papules was consistent with neurofibromas. Decades prior she had undergone a surgery for the excision of a large schwannoma. Given her lack of other neurofibromatosis findings, the patient was diagnosed with multisegmental neurofibromatosis (multi-SN) with deep schwannoma, a possible new phenotype of SN. Because this entity may be associated with internal malignancy, it is important to screen and educate these patients as well as to provide regular follow-up.
