We present in this paper the case of a 12-year-old girl who had the clinical features of 2 different disorders: neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1) and 3 hemangiomas located in the skin, liver and mediastinum. The patient did not receive any specific treatment and showed a normal progressive evolution that lasted 1 / to 2 years and a very slow regression that lasted for a more prolonged time than expected (the 3 hemangiomas have not completely disappeared yet), although all 3 have been asymptomatic. MRI of the brain did not disclose a hemangioblastoma of the cerebellum or any other vascular lesion of the brain. Mental development of this girl was in the borderline range, as is commonly seen in Pascual-Castroviejo II syndrome (P-CIIS)/PHACE syndrome and in NF1, 2 syndromes which have not been reported to be associated in the same patient previously.
