Name Neurofibromatoses
Synonyms Multiple Neurofibroma | Multiple Neurofibromas | Neurofibroma, Multiple | Neurofibromas, Multiple | Neurofibromatosis | Neurofibromatosis 3 | Neurofibromatosis 3s | Neurofibromatosis Syndrome | Neurofibromatosis Syndromes | Neurofibromatosis Type 3 | Neurofibromatosis Type 3s | Syndrome, Neurofibromatosis | Syndromes, Neurofibromatosis | Type 3, Neurofibromatosis
Definition A group of disorders characterized by an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance with high rates of spontaneous mutation and multiple neurofibromas or neurilemmomas. NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1 (generalized neurofibromatosis) accounts for approximately 95% of cases, although multiple additional subtypes (e.g., NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 2, neurofibromatosis 3, etc.) have been described.
