The Center for Excellence in Care in Neurofibromatosis at UF HEALTH provides comprehensive and exceptional care for patients and families affected with NF. We are designated clinic as a member of the NFCN ( Neurofibromatosis Clinical network). We are also members of the NF Foundation and Network.
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.
