Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a complex, often devastating set of genetic disorders with possible complications throughout the entire body that may also hold the genetic mystery to a host of other human ailments. 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.
