Affecting approximately 1 in 2,500 people or 2 million people worldwide, it appears equally in all races, ethnic groups and both sexes.

A common complication for a person with NF is the growth of tumors on the nerves anywhere in and on the body. To find out more about NF please go to nfmidwest.org.
