Shortened: Life expectancy for people with NF-2 is generally shortened compared to non-affected and NF-1 affected people, but it is also highly dependent on a number of potential conditions, and available treatments. I've added a link that is more comprehensive, and I hope it helps. http://www.ctf.org/pdf/brochures/NF2_Info_for_Patients_Families.pdf
