A 29-­year-old ­male ­with ­known von ­Recklinghausen’s dis­ease is pre­sented. The ­main ­symptom of the ­patient was par­ox­ysmal epi­sodes of ­pain and numb­ness in the ­right ­upper ­hand for the ­last 10 ­years. Cer­vical and med­i­astial mag­netic res­o­nance ­imaging (MRI) ­revealed 3 ­large ­tumors orig­i­nating ­from the ­right ­vagus ­nerve and an ­other of the ­same ­origin con­tra­lat­er­ally. Sur­gical resec­tion of the ­masses in the ­right hem­i­thorax was per­formed via ­right pos­te­ro­lat­eral thor­a­cotomy. The post­op­er­a­tive ­course was ­uneventful and symp­toms ­recessed. ­Plexoid neu­ro­fib­romas ­were diag­nosed at his­to­log­ical exam­ina­tion. The ­mass in the ­left hem­i­thorax is ­under sur­veil­lance ­according to the ­patient’s pref­er­ence. The clin­ical, radio­log­ical, sur­gical, and his­to­path­o­log­ical fea­tures of ­this ­rare ­case are dis­cussed.
