A patient with optic pathway glioma, scoliosis, Chiari type I malformation and syringomyelia: is it Neurofibromatosis type 1?
 

Author(s): A Chakravarty, A Bhargava, S Nandy

Journal: Neurol India. 2002 Dec;50(4):520-1.

We considered this combination to be more than coincidental and argue in favour of considering the case as a variant form of Neurofibromatosis ...
