Neurofibromas and Schwannomas are benign neurogenic neoplasms of Schwann cell derivation. Neurofibromas occur slightly more frequently than schwannomas and tend to occur in younger age. In neurofibromatosis, tumors are multiple and often deep seated and tend to grow to a large size. The preoperative diagnosis of these lesions is of significant clinical utility. If the lesion is small and does not cause pain or neurologic deficit, it need not be removed. We diagnosed a case of intraabdominal neurofibroma by ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB).
