Neurocutaneous syndromes are disorders that lead to growth of tumors in various parts of the body. They are caused by the abnormal development of cells in an embryo and characterized by the presence of tumors in various parts of the body and eyes, including the nervous system and by certain differences in the skin. The most common neurocutaneous syndromes include, neurofibromatosis, Sturge_Weber syndrome, tuberous sclerosis, ataxia-telangiectasia, and, von Hippel-Lindau disease. Symptoms vary widely and while present early may not express until later in life. Molecular medicine and genetic science is continuing to impact our understanding of neurocutaneous syndromes. This content here will include the latest molecular and genetic science and be supported by current animal models.
