Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is a common genetic disorder affecting 1 in 3000 live births. It is well documented to be associated with bony deformities and other orthopaedic problems. Based on our observation that NF1 patients undergoing orthopaedic surgery often had osteopenic bone, we performed a study to assess the bone mineral density of a cohort of children with NF1 without orthopaedic defects.Twenty-three patients were recruited from the neurofibromatosis clinic. The bone mineral… CONTINUE READING
