NIH Rare Diseases:43 A neurofibroma is a non-cancerous (benign) tumor that develops from the cells and tissues that cover nerves. some people who develop neurofibromas have a genetic condition known as neurofibromatosis (nf). there are different types of nf, but type 1 is the most common. last updated: 6/6/2012

MalaCards: Neurofibroma is related to plexiform neurofibroma and neurofibromatosis. An important gene associated with Neurofibroma is NF1 (neurofibromin 1), and among its related pathways are Glioblastoma Multiforme and Axonal growth inhibition (RHOA activation). The compounds estrogen and s 100 have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Related mouse phenotypes are limbs/digits/tail and integument.
