Neurofibromatosis-Noonan syndrome

Neurofibromatosis type 1 with Noonan syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations of the NF1 gene. It is a variant of neurofibromatosis 1 which in addition to cafe-au-lait spots and and multiple neurofibromas shows physical signs of Noonan syndrome.

Symptoms

Café au lait spots
In this type of neurofibromatosis cafe-au-lait spots are also associated with physical deformations typical of Noonan syndrome.
