These tumors are usually benign (non-cancerous) but sometimes it converts to malignant (cancerous). The symptoms depend on the types of neurofibroma.
Types of Neurofibromatosis Syndrome
- Neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1)
- Neurofibromatosis 2 (NF2)
1. Neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1)
It develops itself at birth or during early childhood. NF1 is characterized by multiple light brown spots in the groin and underarm, when people with NF1 may develop tumors in the brain, on the cranial nerves or spinal cord. It mostly affects the central nervous system. Its complications include optic nerve glioma results in visual loss, scoliosis, and vascular lesions.
2. Neurofibromatosis 2 (NF2)
Develops during childhood, or early adulthood. NF2 is less common than NF1, characterized by benign tumors on the nerves of both the ears that transmit sound impulses and signals from the inner ears to the brain. These tumors commonly affect both the left and right, i.e. bilateral auditory nerves are hearing nerves.
It is a rare type of neurofibromatosis. It develops on the cranial and spinal nerves. Researcher shows that it is a genetic disease. This disorder causes chronic pain, and more frequently diagnosed in adults aged 30 or older.
Symptoms of Neurofibromatosis

- Neurofibromas i.e bumps under the skin, a benign tumor, which usually is developed under the skin but also grows inside the body. Sometimes, NF1 may involve multiple nerves i.e. plexiform neurofibroma.
- Freckles (A pale brown spot) in the armpits or in the groin area, freckling usually appears between the age group of 3-5.
- Nodules form in the iris of the eyes, which can’t be easily seen by the naked eye but don’t affect the vision.
- The benign tumor develops on the optic nerve, the tumor usually appears by the age of 3, rarely in late childhood but never seen in adults.
- Children with NF 1, tend to have a larger head size due to an increase in brain volume.
- With NF1, Impaired thinking skills. This symptom is usually mild.
2. Neurofibromatosis 2
NF 2 is not very common. It usually shows the development of benign, slow-growing tumors in both the ears. These tumors grow on the nerve that balances the information from the inner ear to the brain, this condition is called vestibular schwannomas.

In this new fibromatosis, the tumor develops on the skull (cranial nerves) or the spinal nerves but it does not involve in the sound and balancing information. The tumor doesn’t grow on the hearing nerves, so schwannomatosis doesn’t cause hearing loss.

Causes of Neurofibromatosis Syndrome
People get suffered from neurofibromatosis, which is due to mutations in the genes i.e. genetic defect. There are specific genes involved in a different type of neurofibromatosis:
Basically, the NF1 gene is located on chromosome 17, produces neurofibromin protein. If a mutation occurs in that gene, uncontrolled cell growth occurs.
NF2 gene is located on chromosome 22, produces a merlin protein called, merlin or schwannoma, which suppresses tumors. The mutation causes a loss of merlin, leading to uncontrolled cell growth.
Schwannomatosis, Mutations in the genes both, SMARCB1 and LZTR1.
