ABSTRACT
This article presents a case study of a 27 year old man, who was presented with multiple papules, nodules and hyperpigmented spots on the body, along with a deformity of the right forearm. The right forearm was grossly shortened with a length of only 12 cm. Examination revealed a diagnosis of neurofibromatosis type-1 and pseudoarthrosis as a complication. Pseudoarthrosis is usually associated with neurofibromatosis type-1 or fibrous dysplasia.
