Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a set of complex genetic disorders that can affect almost every organ system, causing a predisposition for tumors to grow on nerves in the brain and throughout the body.
A broad term for a group of neurologic (NEURO – brain, spine, and peripheral nerve) disorders that involve other parts of the body, and prominently the skin (CUTANEOUS). These diseases are lifelong conditions that affect the nervous system and other organ systems, and require comprehensive evaluation and follow up by expert physicians.
UF Health physicians have extensive expertise in managing and treating these complex NF disorders and are able to provide the most advanced care to patients. NF-related disorders may affect the nerves, spinal cord, brain, skin and other systems throughout the body.
