Case Study
The article presents a case study of a thirty-eight-year-old woman with periarticular neurofibroma in the left shoulder. Neurofibromatosis, an autosomal dominant disorder, covers a set of genetic disorders causing tumors to arise within or attached to nerve trunks. The rare intra-articular neurofibroma from the more commonly occurring erosive inflammatory arthropathy was distinguished through biopsy.
