Topic: Neurofibromatosis type 1; Clinical presentation and new insights

Description:

Diagnostic criteria for neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) have been recently revised and information on molecular testing is now included. In 10% of cases a genotype-phenotype correlation can be established and clear criteria have been established to diagnose mosaic NF1. This autosomal dominantly inherited condition (1/2500 births) results from heterozygous pathogenic variants in the NF1 gene followed by a somatic second hit in the normal copy in affected tissues. This results in an increased signalling through the MAP-kinase pathway. In 2020 FDA, and in 2021 EMA approved the use of a specific MEK-inhibitor for the treatment of plexiform neurofibromas in children. ERN-GENTURIS prepared actual surveillance and management guidelines for NF-related tumours in children and adults.

Speakers: Professor Eric Legius, Belgium
Chair: Professor Dana Craiu, Romania
