In brief: Neurofibromatosis
If you mean neurofibromatosis1, there is a 50% likelihood of the child inheriting the defective gene and the disease.
It is an autosomal dominant disorder.

Prenatal testing is available. Consultation with a geneticist or perinatologist might be helpful to you. Check the websites: nfnetwork.org and uptodate.com for more information.

In brief: Fifty % for each
If this is really NF1, each child has a 50% chance of inheriting it.
Talk with your physicians about options for preimplantation testing, and what other options may be available to you.

In brief: NF1??
Please be more specific about nf1.
I cannot help you with something if I do not understand the question. I do not know this abbreviation nf1.
