Neurofibromatosis and Schwannomatosis
The University of North Carolina Neurofibromatosis Clinic provides multidisciplinary care for children and adults with neurofibromatosis type I (NF1), neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2), and schwannomatosis. The clinic is located at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill and provides services to individuals throughout North Carolina and surrounding states.
UNC Health has a long history of research, care, and treatment of neurofibromatosis patients. The UNC Neurofibromatosis Clinic opened nearly 50 years ago, and UNC researchers were the first to develop genetic testing for NF1.
Additional neurocutaneous disorders are also evaluated and treated in the clinic, including tuberous sclerosis, Sturge-Weber, ataxia telangectasia, incontinentia pigmentae, linear sebaceous nevus syndrome, and others.
