Neurocutaneous Disorders

Neurocutaneous disorders are a broad group of genetic conditions that often result in disorders of the brain, spine, nervous system and/or skin. 

We group neurocutaneous disorders into a single category because they all affect the nervous system. However, we see patients with symptoms and conditions that affect other parts of the body, too, from cataracts in the eyes to skeletal deformities and hearing loss.

Symptoms can range in severity and appear at any age. The tumors caused are not always cancer, but can become cancerous. Learn more about the neurocutaneous conditions we treat.
