Dumbbell-Shaped Neurofibroma Over the External Ear.

Shirol SS, Kodaganur S, Dani AA, Bhagwat PV - J Cutan Aesthet Surg (2015 Jul-Sep)

Bottom Line: Dumbbell-shaped swellings in neurofibroma have been commonly described in the spine, thorax, cranial cavity, and pelvis; however, dumbbell-shaped swellings in the peripheries are rare.Here, we report a dumbbell-shaped neurofibroma over the pinna in an 18-year-old female patient, its successful surgical management, and its association with Hashimoto thyroiditis.To the best of our knowledge, this is the first ever case to be reported of a dumbbell-shaped neurofibroma over the external ear and only the fourth case of neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) to be associated with Hashimoto thyroiditis.

Figure 5: MRI images showing (a) swelling over the external ear (b) ill-defined lesion in the thalamic region suggestive of astrocytoma

Mentions: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a soft tissue swelling in the left external ear with diffuse enhancement and no intracranial extension [Figure 5b]. There was also an ill-defined lesion in the posterior part of the left thalamus with mild mass effect, suggestive of astrocytoma [Figure 5a].
