What is Neurofibromatosis?

Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to form on nerve tissue. These tumors can develop anywhere in the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. The severity of the condition can vary widely, with some individuals experiencing mild symptoms and others facing more serious complications. 

There are three types of neurofibromatosis, with type 1 being the most common. This condition affects approximately 1 in 3,000 people worldwide. Neurofibromatosis can be diagnosed in both children and adults, and while there is no cure, treatment options are available to manage symptoms and improve quality of life.
