Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal-dominant inherited disorder and its prominent feature is the neurofibroma and renal involvement includes renal artery stenosis and renal artery aneurysms causing renovascular hypertension. The genitourinary tract may be rarely involved, leading to urinary symptoms of obstruction and hydronephrosis. Herein, we report a 12-year-old boy with chronic renal failure associated with neurofibromas of the bladder, which leads to urinary obstruction.
