OBJECT The results of two longitudinal studies of growth rates of vestibular schwannomas (VSs) in patients with neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) differ as to whether VS growth rates decrease or increase with increasing patient age. The authors undertook this study to assess the relationship between VS growth rates and patient age and type of constitutional NF2 mutation; they also examined variability in VS growth rates among multiple patients in families with NF2. METHODS Gadolinium-enhanced… CONTINUE READING
