Abstract
Tumors of the brachial plexus are relatively rare. The most common intrinsic tumors involving the brachial plexus are benign schwannomas and neurofibromas. Neurofibromas are usually associated with neurofibromatosis-1 (NF-1). Solitary neurofibromas unassociated with NF-1 are very uncommon. We report a 56 year-old man with brachial plexus solitary neurofibroma and reviews of literatures.
