How to Treat quiz: Neurofibromatosis type 1

Relevance to General Practice

Signs of NF1 generally appear in the first few years of life, and the condition can vary in severity, even within families. Common features include cafe au lait macules, neurofibromas, Lisch nodules, freckling in the groin or axilla and learning problems. Serious complications can include malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumours optic pathway glioma, phaeochromocytoma, renal artery stenosis and cerebral gliomas. Life expectancy for people with NF1 is reduced by 8-15 years because of cancer and cardiovascular complications.
