(A) Coronal multiplanar reconstruction of the neck illustrating probable cystic neurofibromas at the cervico-thoracic junction (arrows). (B) Axial multiplanar reconstruction of the lumbo-sacral junction displaying an assumed neurofibroma in the course of the fifth lumbar spinal nerve root (arrow) and a slight enlargement of the neuroforamen. Note multiple small nodules in the paravertebral space probably indicating neurofibromas. (C, D) Axial multiplanar reconstructions of the pelvis showing a supposed plexiform neurofibroma within the right sacral plexus (arrows). (E) Axial multiplanar reconstruction of the chest illustrating a supposed breast neurofibroma on the left side (arrow). (F) Sagittal multiplanar reconstruction of the chest revealing an assumed cutaneous neurofibroma (arrow).
