Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) in children can produce a variety of parenchymal signal abnormalities on cranial MR. Areas of abnormal signal in these patients may represent regions of disordered myelination, "hamartomatous" change or frank neoplasia. The presence of contrast enhancement in intracranial lesions in patients with NF1 is usually strongly suggestive of tumor. We report the case of a child with NF1 and a focal enhancing brain parenchymal lesion which spontaneously resolved without specific therapy.
