Jaccoud artropathy is a syndrome that is characterized by progressive, painless and reversible deformities involving especially the hands. Jaccoud artropathy may occur idiopathicallly as well as being associated with rheumatological diseases, lung malignancy, infections and Parkinson’s disease. Neurofibromatosis is a genetic chilhhood disease which presents with skin, eye, neurological and musculokeletal system manifestations. So far, no case of coexistence of neurofibromatosis and Jaccoud artropathy has been reported. This case is presented due to establishment of Jaccoud arthropathy in a patient with the diagnosis of neurofibromatosis.
