Neurofibroma in the head-and-neck region is a rare entity. It can occur either as a solitary, slowly progressive tumor or as part of neurofibromatosis. We here report three cases of neurofibroma in the head-and-neck region. Case 1 is a 20-year-old female with a solitary neurofibroma in trachea. Case 2 is a 35-year-old male with neurofibromatosis type 1 and spontaneous hemorrhage in the neurofibroma of the facial region. Case 3 is a 25-year-old female with a solitary neurofibroma in the left posterior triangle of the neck. Multiple neurofibroma in the head-and-neck region may occur in the skin as part of neurofibromatosis and as solitary lesions in intratracheal to posterior triangle region of the neck.
