Abstract

A 20 year old male patient with sporadic neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is described with a large deletion (1.5 Mb) involving theNF1 gene, dysmorphism, mental retardation, and unusual ocular and skeletal features. Several NF1 patients with a large NF1 deletion and associated dysmorphism, and a large number of neurofibromas for their age have been described. This study indicates that such large deletions can also involve flanking loci which affect ocular and skeletal development.Clin Dysmorphol12:199-201 © 2003 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
