In brief: Neurofibromatosis
This is a pair of genetic diseases that make a person much more vulnerable to a variety of different tumors, most famously neurofibromas, but also acoustic neuromas / schwannomas, pheochromocytomas, and a variety of others depending on the allele and locus.

In brief: Neurocutaneous
Neurofibromatosis (nf) comes in two types, nf1 and nf2.
Nf1 is the more common of the two. It is a syndrome that results from a mutation in a gene that controls cell growth. Because cells can then grow unrestricted, patients often present with multiple coffee colored (cafe au lait) spots on the skin, tumors of both nerves and the brain can also occur. Close monitoring by a physician is important.

In brief: Neurofibromatosis
Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder involves the brain, nerves and skin.
There are two types, type 1 which is more common and type 2, typically in adults. Type 1 patients have many brown birth marks, can have benign growths in the brain and develop tumors of the nerves of the eye, and other nerves as well. Many patients have no symptoms, but some can have significant problems.
