Pacinian neurofibroma is a rare, benign tumor not associated with von Recklinghausen's disease (neurofibromatosis). Histologically, it is composed of a proliferation of structures resembling normal pressure receptors. A case of pacinian neurofibroma of the hand in a 4-year-old child is presented, along with a review of the literature.
