[Cutaneous manifestations of type 1 neurofibromatosis and their treatment].Ann Chir Plast Esthet. 1998 Aug; 43(4):445-54.AC
After recalling the frequency and pathophysiology of type 1 neurofibromatosis, or Von Recklinghausen disease, the authors report the various cutaneous manifestations: café-au-lait spots, lentigines, cutaneous neurofibromas, plexiform neurofibromas. Treatment must be multidisciplinary, as surgery is difficult and often gives disappointing results. The various surgical treatments are considered according to the type and site of the lesions to be treated, with particular emphasis on the treatment plan, which must be discussed with the patient.
