Abstract

A huge solitary neurofibroma of the radial nerve was resected in a 74-year-old woman. The nerve was cut across and repaired with epineural suture. The patient made an excellent recovery of nerve function. The ability for regeneration of a neurofibromatous nerve even in the elderly is outlined, and the relevant literature briefly reviewed.
