Course : MOC Part IV: Neurofibromatosis-Type 1 (NF1)
Neurofibromatosis-Type 1 (NF1) is a common autosomal dominant genetic condition with an incidence of approximately 1 in 3500. NF1 presents as a multisystem disorder with marked clinical variability. While many patients with ND1 have a generally benign condition without significant medical or developmental problems, approximately 1/3 - 1/2 of patients may have medical and/or developmental problems that require prompt diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment. Close monitoring is required to identify any NF1-related problems that might occur so that appropriate intervention can be undertaken to maximize growth, development, and health.
