Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) was first described in 1882 as a hamartomatous disorder of neural crest derivation. We present the imaging of a 65-year-old woman with NF1. Computed tomography revealed that there were three major findings presented: skeletal deformity, an area of fat (probably related to mesodermal dysplasia), and benign neoplasm within the masticator space. Moreover, masticatory muscles were hypoplastic.
