Femoral pain of solitary neurofibromatous origin: a report of three cases.
  1. D Chin,
  2. S S Gubbay,
  3. J B Foster


    Three patients, each with a solitary neurofibroma in the thigh, are described. The presenting complaint in each case was pain. A neurofibroma of a branch of the femoral nerve was found in two cases and an intraosseous neurofibroma of the femoral shaft was present in the third. An excellent recovery was observed in each of these three patients following surgical excision of the tumour. Attention is drawn to the unduly long interval between the onset of painful symptoms and the achievement of a clinical diagnosis leading to a surgical cure in each instance.
