Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1) is an autosomal dominant disorder involving multiple systems and affects approximately 1 out of 3000 persons. Ocular manifestations are very rare with Lisch nodules, plexiform neurofibroma, and optic pathway gliomas. The proper diagnosis of NF-1 is a crucial task for a clinician due to the various clinical manifestations including vision and life-threatening malignancies in few patients, which may arise in the different phases of life. Here, we present the case of a 45-year-old woman with NF-1 presenting with rare ocular features along with systemic manifestation of the disease.
