Editorial Reviews

A comprehensive review of the clinical and genetic aspects of a disease that affects over one million people worldwide, based on the cumulative experience of the longest continuously functioning program of its kind (Riccardi directs The Neurofibromatosis Institute, Pasadena, California--his vantage point is that of an accumulated 3,700 patient-years of direct observation and follow-up of patients with NF, and a total of 22,900 patient-years, counting from the time of birth until either death or January 1991).
