Rationale: Neurofibromatosis is a multisystem genetic disorder that is characterized by cutaneous findings, multi-systemic impairment and neurofibromas occurring in the nervous system. Patient Concerns: We present two cases of Neurofibromatosis type1, which developed a rare progressive polypoid injury-like complication in the gallbladder and duodenum, possibly neurofibromas. Diagnosis: Both cases required detailed clinical examination, biological investigations, abdominal ultrasound, MRI, digestive endoscopy and histo-pathological diagnosis. Interventions: The treatment required multidisciplinary involvement: Pediatrician, geneticist, dermatologist, pediatric surgeon, anatomy pathologist. Outcomes Lessons: With proper and prompt treatment, the evolution was good. Although rare, gastrointestinal damage should be considered in a patient with NF who has recurrent abdominal pain. Digestive neurofibromas may have different locations and the possible complications depending on their location.
