Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), or von Recklinghausen disease, is a comparatively common hereditary disease in which the skin, nervous system, bones, endocrine glands, and sometimes other organs are the sites of a variety of congenital abnormalities, which often take the form of benign tumors (, 1). They are often multiple, with vestibular schwannomas (VS) being the most common NF2-related schwannomas.
