Neurofibromatosis type I (NF I) is the most common hereditary syndrome predisposing to neoplasia. We report the third case in the literature, documenting the combination of gliosarcoma with NF I. The patient's son was known at our center because of a history of pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma (PXA) with NF I.
