Neurofibromatosis

Introduction

Neurofibromatosis type 2 is a genetic disorder or hereditary condition which is associated with bilateral vestibular schwannomas. This is also called acoustic neuromas. This is a benign growth that occurs on the nerves for balancing and hearing. It affects the 8th cranial nerve known as Vestibulocochlear nerve. This nerve carries information from the inner ear to the brain. In this condition there is a development of bilateral benign brain tumors in the nerve sheath. In this disease additional abnormalities may be present such as clouding of the lenses of the eyes, progressive visual impairment or increased risk of developing cancer in the lining of the brain.
