Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is a rare autosomal dominant genetic disorder. It is a multisystem neurocutaneous condition represented by multiple benign tumors of the nerves and skin known as neurofibromas and cafe' au lait spots. However, neurofibroma localized in the mandible is rare. We present a case of a 3-year-old, Egyptian girl with NF1. The girl presented with right mandibular swelling of undetermined duration and multiple hyperpigmented spots on the skin. This case report shows the important role of dentists, as demonstrated in the present case, in the diagnosis and management of this disease, since the diagnosis was made during dental consultation and subsequently managed by the team.
