Abstract

Neurofibromatosis type 1 is the most common inherited disorder of the nervous system, affecting approximately 1 in 3,000 people. A small but significant subset of these patients develop vasculopathies. We present the first reported case of neurofibromatosis type 1 presenting with obstructive jaundice secondary to multiple hepatic artery aneurysms. Therapy included staged coil embolization of the hepatic artery aneurysms and resection of a large retroperitoneal neurofibroma.
