Localized unilateral hyperhidrosis (LUH) is an uncommon but well-defined special form of localized hyperhidrosis with diverse causes. It often occurs within a sharply demarcated area on the face or upper extremities. Here, we report a case of LUH in a 16-year-old male with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) and review related data in the literature. The association of this rare entity and NF1 has not yet been described. Subcutaneous botulinum toxin A injection provided a good clinical response with symptomatic relief.
