Neurofibromatosis refers to three distinct genetic disorders that share the hallmark manifestation of tumor growth in the tissues that surround nerves. Korf (medical genetics, U. of Alabama-Birmingham) and Rubenstein (neurology, Mount Sinai School of Medicine) summarize what is known about the disorders in language accessible to non-specialists and general readers. Among their topics are pathogenesis, genetic counseling, diagnosis and overall management, neurofibromas and malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors in neurofibromatosis 1, cognitive function and learning disabilities, management of particular features, psychosocial impacts, and practical and quality-of-life issues.
