Neurofibromatosis is a set of complex genetic diseases that can cause a wide range of challenging symptoms, including benign (noncancerous) tumors along your nerves. Other common features include birthmarks, developmental disabilities, headaches, seizures, muscle weakness, skeletal problems such as scoliosis and other neurological symptoms. Cancerous tumors may occur in a few cases.
