Neurofibromatosis and Midwifery Care: A Case Report
Neurofibromatosis (NF) is an autosomal dominant disease that is divided into two groups: type 1 (NF-1) and type 2 (NF-2), with symptoms in the skin, nervous system, and eyes. Our case is a pregnant woman who was admitted to Karabük Education and Research Hospital at the age of 21 due to the arrival of amniotic fluid. Neurofibromas and cafe au lait spots were detected around the abdomen, face, scalp, perineum, and right leg during pregnancy. The complete blood count, urine, blood sugar, liver and kidney function tests performed were evaluated as normal. In our case, it has been observed that the pregnant woman has not been diagnosed with NF-1 so far and these symptoms have not been evaluated in pregnancy follow-ups. In this study, we aimed to present a case who had not previously been diagnosed with NF-1 and whose birth symptoms had started.
