Clinical and instrumental (magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] and multimodal evoked potentials) follow-up of brain lesions in three young patients with neurofibromatosis 1.


Diagnosis of neurofibromatosis 1 is based on clinical criteria. In a large number of children with neurofibromatosis 1, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) reveals high-signal T(2)-weighted intensities in different brain regions, defined as unidentified bright objects. These lesions are asymptomatic; most of them regress spontaneously with age, but the… (More)
