Retropharyngeal tumors in Neurofibromatosis Type I patients have rarely been presented in the literature and none in a child. We present the case of an 11-year-old patient with a huge retropharyngeal plexiform neurofibroma which was successfully removed without sequelae. Radical resection is a viable option for treatment of these patients.
