"Now in its third edition, Neurofibromatosis has been extensively rewritten by a group of leading neurofibromatosis (NF) researchers. It summarizes the current state of knowledge and details significant advances in the basic science and clinical care of patients with NF1 and NF2. Areas of particular emphasis include aspects of natural history, variability, pathology, molecular biology, and cellular biology that give a deeper understanding of the mechanisms responsible for these diseases. The book is a definitive, comprehensive review of the history, heterogeneity, pathogenesis, genetics, and management of NF1 and NF2"--Publisher description.
