Neurofibromatosis is a rare disease (1/3000 born), chronic and incurable and in many cases its symptoms are causing disability. Those affected by this disease present many difficulties, highlighting physical, psychological and sensory problems: epilepsy, bone problems, deafness, blindness, increased risk of malignant tumors, disfigurement or learning difficulties.
The manifestation and evolution is very variable, a condition that produces uncertainty and helplessness, which if not accompanied by adequate and professional support, can lead to psychological disorders. For this reason, those affected need a specialized service to cope with the disease and its social and psychological consequences.
