Invitation: Raising awareness about Neurofibromatosis
February 7, 2007 - Neurofibromatosis (NF) causes tumours to grow anywhere on or in the body. Despite the fact that this genetic disorder is as common as cystic fibrosis and more common than muscular dystrophy, Huntington’s Disease and Tay-Sachs disease combined, the general public knows little about NF. It is estimated that NF1 occurs in one in every 3,000 births and NF2 occurs in one in every 40,000 births.
