Klinik und Genetik der Familiären Spinalen Neurofibromatose
Heininger, Sina Alice
Familial Spinal Neurofibromatosis (FSNF) is a rare type of neurofibromatosis. Only a few clinical cases have been published worldwide. To collect data about the clinical appearance and the genetics we have sent a self-made questionnaire to patients with expected FSNF from the neurofibromatosis ambulance of the University of Ulm. Questionnaires have also sent to institutes for human genetics and neurosururgical departments throughout Germany. It has been possible to record 17 patients with expected FSNF of which 15 have not been published before. Finally we have got the incidence of FSNF and diagnostic criteria for patients with FSNF have been suggested for the first time. Our population has included 9 women and 7 men aged from 24 to 78.
