[neuro- + fibromatosis] Any of a group of genetic disorders affecting the cell growth of neural tissues. A characteristic of the disease is the growth of neurofibromas in many locations within or on the surface of the body. For those with affected family members, genetic assessment and counseling of parents may be indicated. Genetic assessment and counseling can identify the parents' risk of being a gene carrier and passing the disease on to subsequent offspring.
