Modified Wise Pattern Skin Reduction for Plexiform Neurofibromatosis of the Breast

Abstract: Von Recklinhausen's neurofibromatosis is an autosomal dominant condition occurring typically with café au lait patches, axillary freckling, multiple fibromata, and Lisch nodules. We present a case of a 36-year-old female who presented with severe neurofibromatosis involving the lower half of the breast. The patient was not keen on mastectomy and pedicle flap reconstruction. A modified wise pattern incision was employed to remove the lower half of the breast and neurofibromatosis leading to a reasonable result.
