Neurofibromatosis

Recommended Posts

I've seen three folk over the last two years with what I take to be Neurofibromatosis

 

My question is, does anyone here know much about it, googly seems to point to it being a genetic disorder.

 

I know some here have medical backgrounds so any info as it relates to LOS and Laos would be interesting.

I've seen a few people who have it. Made my jaw drop. :(

 

 

Neurofibromatosis, also known as NF, is a genetically inherited disorder of the nervous system (brain and spinal cord) which mainly affects the development of nerve (neural) cell tissues, causing tumors (neurofibromas) to develop on nerves, and may cause other abnormalities. The tumors may be harmless, or may compress nerves and other tissues and cause serious damage. In some rarer cases the tumors may become cancerous.
