Figure 3:Magnetic resonance imaging of the lesion. In addition to the large, centrally located mass, multiple neurofibromas can be seen bilaterally, mainly superior to the mass (e.g., clustered grape-like round/oval densities). Of note, neurofibromas usually show heterogeneous enhancement, whereas schwannomas tend to be more homogeneous. Furthermore, note the so-called “target sign” – A central area of lower intensity surrounded by higher intensity material on T2 images – often seen in plexiform neuromas
