00001 NF1 Neurofibromatosis, type 1 162200 0 0 NF1 skin Neurofibromatosis type I is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by cafe-au-lait spots, Lisch nodules in the eye, and fibromatous tumors of the skin. Individuals with the disorder have increased susceptibility to the development of benign and malignant tumors. NF1 is sometimes referred to as 'peripheral neurofibromatosis.' The worldwide incidence of NF1 is 1 in 2,500 to 1 in 3,000 individuals (reviews by Shen et al., 1996 and Williams et al., 2009).
00002 NF2 Neurofibromatosis, type 2 101000 0 0 NF2 - The central or type II form of neurofibromatosis (NF2) is an autosomal dominant multiple neoplasia syndrome characterized by tumors of the eighth cranial nerve (usually bilateral), meningiomas of the brain, and schwannomas of the dorsal roots of the spinal cord. The incidence of neurofibromatosis type II is 1 in 25,000 live births (Asthagiri et al., 2009). NF2 has few of the hallmarks of the peripheral or type I form of neurofibromatosis (NF1; 162200), also known as von Recklinghausen disease.
