Macrodactyly is a rare anomaly. Little is understood about the etiology and underlying mechanisms. To our knowledge, macrodactyly has not previously been associated with neurofibromatosis type 2. We present a case of macrodactyly of the small finger associated with a digital nerve plexiform schwannoma in a patient with neurofibromatosis type 2.
