Treatment of Neurofibromatosis in Ayurveda – Symptoms & Causes


Neurofibromatosis or von Recklinghausen’s disease may be defined as the condition that is characterized by multiple neuro-fibromas and pigmented skin spots (cafe au lait spots). Three main conditions are responsible for causing tumour growth in the nervous system. Neurofibromatosis type 1, neurofibromatosis type 2 and schwannomatosis are the major three types. These patients have the family history consistent with autosomal dominant inheritance in 50% of patients.

Neurofibromatosis in von Recklinghausen’s disease is ideally characterized by numerous nodules of varying size, seen along the small cutaneous nerves but may also be found in the visceral branches of sympathetic nerves. It may involve a group of nerves or may occur as multiple, oval and irregular swelling along the length of a nerve.


Neuro-fibromas are the conditions that may occur as the fusiform cutaneous tumour of a single nerve, soliatry but more often are multiple associated with von Recklinghausens’s disease. Solitary neuro-fibromas or neurofibromatosis is a hereditary disorder with autosomal dominant inheritance. Solitary neurofibroma is generally asymptomatic but patients with von Recklinghausen’s disease have a triad of features-

  • Multiple cutaneous neurofibromas
  • Numerous pigmented skin lesions (cafe au lait spots)
  • Pigmented iris hamartomas

Neurofibroma has the tendency for local recurrence after excision. It is estimated that about 3% of patients with neurofibrotomasis develop malignant transformation of the one nodule. Rarely neurogenic sarcoma may develop spontaneously in the absence of pre-existing von Recklinghausen’s disease.

Symptoms of NF1

  • Multiple light brown spots on the skin
  • Very tiny bumps within nerves
  • Scoliosis
  • Freckles growth in armpit and groin region
  • Learning disabilities
  • Larger head size
  • Bone deformities

Symptoms of NF2

  • Cataract in young age
  • Hearing loss
  • Balance related problems
  • Muscle wasting
  • Skins flaps of flesh colour
  • Severe headaches

Symptoms of Schwannomatosis

  • Numbness and weakness in various body parts
  • Muscle loss


A major cause of this serious disorder is gene mutation in certain genes. Neurofibromatosis type1 is a genetic disorder having the mutation in chromosome 17 while type2 has a mutation in chromosome 22. In major cases, this is inherited from parent to offspring.
