Does neurofibromatosis run in families?

Neurofibromatosis is potentially hereditary. Genetic mutations are the cause of neurofibromas. Neurofibromatosis is an autosomal dominant disorder.
Generally, there is a 50% chance that each child born to a person with the disease will inherit the disease. If the parents do not have any manifestations of the disease, the probability of the patient’s parents having another pregnancy is low, but it is necessary to exclude germ cell mosaic mutations and it is recommended to consult the relevant specialist to determine whether prenatal diagnosis is necessary.
