Neurofibromatosis type 1(NF-1) or von Recklinghausendisease is the most common of the neurocutaneous syndromes.It is characterized by pigmented cutaneous lesionsand tumors of central nervous system. By the way,it could affect all the systems of the body. Sphenoid wingabnormalities are very rare and often associated withNF-1 so, they are considered pathognomonic. We reportan unusual case NF-1 with unilateral absence of sphenoidwing and findings of multi-detector computed tomographyand magnetic resonance imaging.
