CT appearance of generalized von Recklinghausen neurofibromatosis

CT appearance of generalized von Recklinghausen neurofibromatosis

Journal of Computer Assisted Tomography 7(5): 866-869

Two cases of von Recklinghausen neurofibromatosis (VRN) with thoracic and abdominal involvement are described. Computed tomography demonstrated the typical lesions of this disease: meningoceles, neurofibromas, and skeletal alterations. In both cases lesion morphology and location were similar and characteristic, in particular in the pelvic region. Computed tomography findings in generalized VRN are sufficiently characteristic to be considered diagnostic for this disease.
