Neurofibromas are relatively common lesions of the nervous system, but only a few cases involving the pinna have been reported. Isolated neurofibroma of pinna without neurofibromatosis has not been reported in the literature so far. Neurofibromas may develop anywhere in the body, including cranial and peripheral nerves. The type of impairment associated with neurofibromas depends largely on the site of the lesion. Cutaneous lesions, especially in the head and neck, generally cause deformity, whereas lesions that affect deeper systems (e.g., the auditory and ocular systems) are more likely to cause functional impairment. Usually found in individuals with neurofibromatosis, we report a case of neurofibroma of pinna in a patient without neurofibromatosis
