In brief: Neurofibromatosis

Neurofibromatosis or nf is an inherited disorder or one that occur spontaneously in a patient.
It is a disorder that involves the nerves, structures that carry information from the brain to outlying parts of our bodies. In nf there are tumors, which in most cases are benign that arise from these nerves. The disease is extremely variable in how it affects a patient.
