      <Abstract>We present here an interesting case report of a patient presenting with Type1 Neurofibromatosis and a Spitz Nevus. A Spitz nevus is a benign nevus of spindle cells, usually pink, brown, or black in color. After an initial period of growth, the majority of Spitz nevi tend to stabilize their growth, reaching a final size smaller than 6 mm in about 95% of patients. The treatment indicated is complete excision to determine the lesion's depth and extension. Despite the fact that the Spitz nevus is a benign lesion, its transformation into a malignant lesion has been reported. Type 1 Neurofibromatosis is a rare genetic condition characterised by the development of multiple small nodules of a benign neural tumor which are neurofibromas, distributed all over the body posing a cosmetic problem to the patient.</Abstract>
