NORTJE, MB  y  DUNN, RN. Spinal deformity in neurofibromatosis. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.3, pp. 31-34. ISSN 2309-8309.

Scoliosis is a common orthopaedic condition associated with neurofibromatosis (NF). The associated scoliosis can be severe and tortuous providing management challenges with frequently poor outcome. An awareness and earlier intervention may well improve this. We present 14 patients with NF seen in our spinal service from mid 2001 until 2008. Clinical presentation, curves and surgical management are reported.
