Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1) is an autosomal dominant disease primarily characterized by cutaneous caf? au lait macules, benign neurofibromas, and iris hamartomas. A spectrum of vascular abnormalities is associated with NF-1. We present a case of a 49-year-old female with NF-1 and spontaneous rupture of the infrarenal aorta caused by invasion of a neurofibroma and treated with endovascular stent grafting.
