A patient with optic pathway glioma, scoliosis, Chiari type I malformation and syringomyelia: is it Neurofibromatosis type 1?

Abstract

A 22 years old girl had features of optic pathway glioma, scoliosis, Chiari type 1 malformation and cervical syringomyelia. She had no cutaneous lesions. We considered this combination to be more than coincidental and argue in favour of considering the case as a variant form of Neurofibromatosis type 1. The relevent literature in favour of our contention has been reviewed.
