    Plexiform neurofibromas occur in about 60% of neurofibromatosis type 1(NF-1) patients and can lead to severe morbidity by disfigurement or compression of vital structures. Moreover, these tumors can undergo malignant transformation. Both focal and localized bone abnormalities are part of the...

    Gastrointestinal tract involvement by neurofibromatous lesions is rare and occurs most frequently as one of the systemic manifestations of generalized neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). In this setting, the lesions may manifest as focal scattered neurofibromas or as an extensive diffuse neural...

    Diagnosis of ALS is based on clinical examination and electromyographic tests which are used to confirm the clinical suspicion and to exclude alternatives. Atypical presentations may delay the diagnostic and subject the patient to unnecessary tests and procedures. We discuss here three cases...

    We report the findings in five muscle and three sural nerve biopsies, and in one postmortem plexus specimen, from six patients with hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy (HNA). We found that the sensory nerves are definitely involved in HNA despite the mainly motor symptoms, and that lesions in nerves...
