Neurofibromas originating from vagus nerves are rarely reported in the literature. In particular, plexiform neurofibromas of the bilateral cervical vagus nerve are extremely rare.Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1) is an autosomal dominant genetic disease, caused by NF1 gene mutations at chromosome 17q11.2.The condition is characterized by multiple skin lesions such as café-au-lait macules and neurofibromas growing along the parent nerves. Bilateral cervical vagal neurofibromas are extremely rare among patients with neurofibromatosis type 1. To our knowledge, this is the first report of bilateral cervical neurofibromas originating from the vagal nerves.
