NIH Rare Diseases:43 Neurofibromatosis type 5, also known as segmental neurofibromatosis, is a rare disorder that causes neurofibromas (benign tumors) to develop on or just under the skin.  individuals with neurofibromatosis type 5 may or may not also develop skin spots called café-au-lait spots or other features of neurofibromatosis type 1. the affected area can vary in size from a narrow strip to covering nearly half of the body and may be located on one or both sides of the body. last updated: 10/11/2013

MalaCards: Neurofibromatosis Type 5, also known as segmental neurofibromatosis, is related to neurofibroma and neurofibromatosis. An important gene associated with Neurofibromatosis Type 5 is NF2 (neurofibromin 2 (merlin)). Affiliated tissues include skin.
