Abstract

Colorectal manifestation of von Recklinghausen's disease is a rare entity. The typical dumbbell shape of the lesion has been described previously, but only from a resected cecal specimen. The authors present the endosonographic appearance of a rectal neurofibroma, which shows a similar hourglass shape, thus facilitating the diagnosis.
