    • ...CRPS is classified into type 1 (no known inciting injury; formerly known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy, RSD) and type 2 (known or suspected inciting injury, formerly known as causalgia). We diagnosed three patients (NIH-1, NIH-2, and NIH-3) with CRPS type 2 before excision, suggesting that the syndrome arose secondary to the glomus tumours, and not surgery. Patients presented with allodynia, hyperesthesia, dysesthesia, oedema, sudomotor and vasomotor changes primarily affecting one limb, a clinical picture not consistent with neurofibromatous neuropathy, an uncommon but well recognised neurologic complication in NF1....

    • ...The involvement of the nervous system in NF1 mainly consists in learning disabilities, plexiform neurofibromas, megalencephaly, cerebral tumours, headache, acqueductal stenosis, cerebrovascular disease, meningoceles, neurofibromatous neuropathy and cerebral high-signal lesions on T2-weighted magnetic resonance images [2, 3, 5, 8, 9]. Some authors had unquestioningly accepted in the past that epilepsy was one of the most common neurological ...
