Nail bed solitary neurofibroma
Nail bed solitary neurofibroma is an extremely rare tumor, with only 9 cases recorded in the literature so far.

Published in the journal Medicine, the authors present the case of a 42-year-old female patient, with a history of a slowly growing tumor in the nail bed of the left index and no clinical features of type I neurofibromatosis.

The tumor was surgically removed and the pathology examination established the diagnosis of neurofibroma. The postoperative outcome was good, with no recurrence 12 months after surgery.

Key takeaway:-
- Nail bed solitary neurofibroma should be also included in the differential diagnosis of a nail bed tumor.
