If I Have Nf1 What Is The Chance That I Will Have A Child With Nf1
Maybe, maybe not : Neurofibromatosis doesn't necessarily lead to developmental or intellectual delay. It's more of a structural problem. If a neurofibroma is ina critical location it may have neurological consequences. But this is rare. Other neurological problems are more common. Seizures, weakness, paralysis. See a specialist in nf at a children's hospital. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
If neither parent has NF1 and they have a child with a seemingly spontaneous case, what it the likelihood of having another child with the disorder?
Negligable: The incidence of NF is cited as 1/4000 with about 30% as new mutations. Since your child is a new mutation, the risk would be much less than 1/4000. Since about 4% of all pregnancies end up with an unexpected outcome (premi, infection, birth defect), I would look at the risk as negligable.You may want to review the contributions of both parents to your risk profile with a geneticist before pregnan ...Read more
Nervecell overgrowth: Neurofibromatosis is inherited problem with varying degrees of involvement from mild to severe. Neurofibroma is benign tumor that originates from the nerve cells. This tumor usually arise from nerves in the skin or jut under the skin.Type 1 usually appears in children with brown flat skin spots, freckling in armpits, and soft tumors under the skin. Other rarer types involve more brain tumors. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Doctors think my child has neurofibromatosis. Right now...It looks like a mild form, but what can I expect in the future?
Variable: I do not know age of child. Nf is very variable in expression and progression. Nf1 can affect the skin(neurofibromas, cafe au lait spots) , eyes( gliomas), bones( scoliosis and pseudarthrosis)nerves with neurofibromas, and a person's general constitution (adhd and mental retardation). The more severe cases are usually detected earlier in life. Nf2 includes ependymomas, meningiomas, acoustic neuromas. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My sister has NEUROFIBROMATOSIS type 2. She only has the cafe spots on her body. Will I develop it too? Is there a chance she will get a tumor? :(
Depends on parent: NF2 inherited as change in the NF2 gene from one of parents. Some people have mutation with NF2 gene in first person in family to be affected. No matter if NF2 gene change was inherited from a parent or is newly affected, every person who has NF2 gene change has a 50% chance of passing on to children. If your parent does not have gene your sister was mutation and you are unlikely to have nf2. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Variable: Dark brown skin patches, frecking(armpits, groins, under breast), raised spots (lisch nodules) on the iris of the eye, fractures of long bones in childhood, freckling armpits, groin, womens breasts, orneurofibromas (tumors on the skin or deeper in the body), larger tumors under the skin (plexiform neurofibromas), with pressure on nearby nerves or organs, cognitive impairment (adhd, learning disorder. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Sometimes: Cancerous and noncancerous tumors can develop in these syndromes.Men (multiple endocrine neoplasia) is in two forms.Men1 involves tumors of the pituitary, parathyroid gland, and pancreas. Hyperparathyroidism occurs in men1 with demineralization of bones. Men2 involves the thyroid gland, adrenal gland, and pancreas.In men2 most noted tumors, medullary thyroid cancer and the adrenal pheochromocytoma. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not reported: Chances of nf1 and nf2 occurring in same patient extremely rare . They are caused by different genes and chromosomes. Nf1 occurs in an estimated one out of every 3, 500 births.Approximately 50% inherited and other 50% of cases are the result of spontaneous genetic mutation. Severity varies with expression.Nf2 occurs in an estimated one out of every 40, 000 births. Smaller percentage inherited. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
