Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) was first described by Frederick von Recklinghausen, who proposed that the characteristic dermal tumors observed in NF1 arose from the fibrous tissue surrounding peripheral nerves, leading to the term neurofibroma. In addition to neurofibromas, individuals affected with NF1 may exhibit a multitude of other clinical manifestations that affect different organ systems, with neurologic, dermatologic, ophthalmologic, and orthopedic impairments being most common. Loss of neurofibromin in cells lacking NF1 generates high levels of the guanosine triphosphatase (GTPase) activating protein RAS, resulting in dysregulated cell growth and tumor formation (Sherman et al, 2000).
