Abstract

Neurofibromatosis is a relatively common inherited disease of the nervous system with a frequency of about 1 in 3000 births and affecting about 20000 people in the Federal Republic of Germany. It consists of at least two distinct genetic diseases: neurofibromatosis 1, as described by Friedrich von Recklinghausen and characterized by café-au-lait spots and subcutaneous neurofibromas, and neurofibromatosis 2, recently established as a separate entity and characterized by bilateral acoustic neuromas [1–3, 21, 26].
