SUMMARY The type-I neurofibromatosis (von Recklinghausen disease) (NF-1), is a dominantly inherited syndrome with varying disease manifestations with the consistent feature that tissues derived from the neural crest is most commonly affected. In addition to the nearly uniform development of neurofibromas, NF1 patients are at elevated risk of developing pheochromocytomas, schwannomas, neurofibrosarcomas, and primary brain tumours. Although gastrointestinal tumours have been well described in patients with von Recklinghausen disease, and numerous case studies have been reported, colonic cancer is rarely associated with the disease. We report a case of multiple synchronous colonic tumours, in a patient who fulfilled two of the seven criteria proposed by the NIH (National Institute of Health) for the diagnosis of NF1. Key words: neurofibromatosis-1, von Recklinghausen disease, multiple adenocarcinoma of colon, phacomatosis (EN)
