Treatment for neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) depends on the symptoms the patient is presenting.
|other CNS / peripheral tumors|
Surgical options for tumors associated with NF2
- Surgery is the primary treatment for most peripheral nerve tumors associated with NF2.
- Surgery may also be considered for ependymomas and meningiomas associated with NF2 if they become symptomatic.
- Surgery is also commonly performed for vestibular schwannomas under specific circumstances.
Observation is often recommended for tumors with slow or no growth.
While there is currently no cure for NF2, there are clinical trials available at the Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Neurofibromatosis (NF) Center.
