Good afternoon, my doctor would like to ask whether neurofibromatosis type 1 needs an EEG examination, and how are the results from the EEG results? Thank you.

1 Answer:

Hello,

Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a genetic disorder in which cell growth is disrupted, causing tumors to form in various places such as the nervous system.

This condition usually occurs in children or young adults. The most common symptoms are:

Coffee-like brown spots all over the body. Generally, the diagnosis can be suspected if there are more than 6 coffee spots in the body. lumps on the skin, can be more than one. Lumps are benign. Brown spots on the iris of the eye. Behavioral Disorders - ADHD (hyperactivity) learning disorders. Seizures Impaired physical growth. Hypertension. EEG in patients with NF is needed to check the flow of electricity in the brain, especially in people with NF who have had seizures. EEG is used to see if there is a disruption in the flow of electricity in the brain due to an NF tumor.

Regarding the EEG results, of course it must be seen on a case by case basis. You can further consult with the doctor who treats you for this problem.

NF is a medical condition that has not had a perfect treatment. Therapy is only intended to overcome patient complaints and prevent complications with surgery, chemotherapy, or lasers and drugs depending on the patient's own complaints.

If you already know the medical condition you are experiencing, consult a neurologist and routine control.

I hope this helps.
