Complete excision of a giant neurofibroma can be technically difficult. Thorough preoperative planning with magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and arteriography are indicated to define the extent of the mass and to facilitate operative planning. By following the treatment guidelines discussed in this case report, the authors feel that these tumors can be excised safely with minimal morbidity.
