  • Neurofibroma

Description of disability:

A neurofibroma is a benign nerve sheath tumor in the peripheral nervous system. These are benign, slow-growing nerve tumors, similar to schwannomas. They commonly occur in patients who suffer from neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder resulting in multiple tumors throughout the body.They can occasionally occur in patients without this genetic abnormality. Neurofibromatosis refers to several genetically inherited conditions that are clinically and genetically different and carry a high possibility of tumor formation. In most cases, symptoms are mild, and individuals live normal and productive lives. In some cases, however, can be severely debilitating and may cause cosmetic and psychological issues. The course of NF2 varies greatly among individuals. In some cases of NF2, the damage to nearby vital structures, such as other cranial nerves and the brain stem can be life-threatening. Most individuals with schwannomatosis have significant pain. In some extreme cases the pain will be severe and disabling.

Treatment:

For symptomatic and cosmetic indications, the growth is excised as much as possible and depending on the site and size the patient is admitted.

Post operative care:

Rest, elevation and compression of the part is necessary along with pressure garments where needed.
