A case is presented of a 36-year-old male with narrowing of the external meatus due to a diffuse neurofibroma. This unusual variety of neurofibroma spreads superficially and has many ectatic blood vessels. The size, vascularity, uncertain edges and a tendency to recur makes surgical removal difficult. The treatment options are discussed.
