Definition Neurofibromatosis type I (NF-1), along with Neurofibromatosis type II (a.k.a. MISME syndrome), Tuberous Sclerosis, Sturge-Weber, and Von Hippel-Lindau compromise the phakomatosis or neurocutaneous syndromes, all of which have neurologic and dermatologic lesions. This grouping is an artifact of an earlier time in medicine, before the distinct genetic basis of each...

Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumor Doctors Doctor

Location: http://www.thedoctorsdoctor.com/diseases/pnet.htm

Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumor (PNET) is a soft tissue sarcoma classically described under small round blue cell tumors (SRBCT). There is considerable clinical and histologic overlap between this tumor and Ewing's sarcoma (ES). For many years, pathologists struggled to make a diagnostic distinction. Now with sophisticated molecular biological analysis, it turns...

Neurofibromatosis, Von Recklinghausen's disease, is an autosomal dominant inherited disorder of mesenchymal tissue, where fibrous skin tumours, neurilemmomas and areas of skin pigmentation ( cafe-au-lait spots ) are typical features. Neurolemmomas can affect cranial or peripheral nerves.
Bone radiographs may show disturbance of bone architecture which can immitate polyostotic fibrous dysplasia,...

Spinal Cord Impingement by a displaced rib in scoliosis due to neurofibromatosis

Location: http://www.cma.ca/multimedia/staticContent/HTML/N0/l2/cjs/vol-48/issue-5/pdf/pg414.pdf

Neurofibromatosis is often associated with a dysplastic progressive scoliosis. Enlargement of the neural foramina by erosion of adjecent neurofibomas occasionally predisposes to the adjacent attached rib entering the spinal canal. We describe such a case in which partial rib excision and later posterior spinal fusion resulted in complete recovery (full...

Location: http://cat.inist.fr/?aModele=afficheN&cpsidt=2089681

Spine 1997, vol. 22, no23, pp. 2770-2776 (25 ref.)
Abstract: When evaluating patients with neurofibromatosis and scoliosis, a careful search for the evidence of dystrophic changes should done, because prognosis and management depend highly on the presence of these changes. Preoperative imaging studies including computed tomography or magnetic-resonance imaging are recommended,...

What is Neurofibromatosis

Location: http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/neurofibromatosis/neurofibromatosis.htm

The neurofibromatoses are genetic disorders of the nervous system that primarily affect the development and growth of neural (nerve) cell tissues. These disorders cause tumors to grow on nerves and produce other abnormalities such as skin changes and bone deformities. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke Highly Reputable
