A 15-month-old girl was initially referred for endocrine evaluation for clitoromegaly and subsequently found to have an adrenal mass that tracked along the paravertebral region and was associated with increased vascular markings along the skin. Neurologic examination was normal. Magnetic resonance imaging of the chest mass demonstrated a serpiginous lesion along the intercostal margins. Initial differential diagnosis included neuroblastoma, ganglioneuroblastoma, vascular lesion, or nerve sheath tumor. Biopsy was consistent with plexiform neurofibroma. Subsequent examination revealed features consistent with neurofibromatosis type 1. A review of clinical features of NF1 is provided in the case report.
