Lisch nodules are melanocytic hamartomas of the iris, often associated with neurofibromatosis (NF) I. They are usually elevated and tan in appearance. Their incidence in NF1 increases with age and their prevalence raises by about 10% per year of life, up to age 9. These photographs show the various appearances of these nodules in 3 different patients with NF1.
