Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2)


Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) is a rare genetic condition with a missing or damaged tumor suppressor protein that results of typically slow growth of two to hundreds of tumors during an individual's life. Each tumor might have a different pattern of growth, and some or all can potentially stop growing for years. There is no cure for NF2.

When doctors and people with NF2 understand the possible risks of the condition, ideal treatment options can be sought out to prevent or delay serious health issues.
