Multiple neurolemomas occurred in a patient with neurofibromatosis (von Recklinghausen's disease). There are several characteristics of the pain often associated with neurolemoma. Clinical distinction is made between neurolemoma and other painful tumors of the skin. There is a close relationship between neurofibroma and neurolemoma.
