Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) is a rare autosomal dominant neurocutaneous disorder (phakomatosis) manifesting as a development of multiple CNS tumors.Unlike neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), it is not associated with neurofibromas.

These tumors can develop anywhere in your nervous system, including your brain, spinal cord and nerves. Remember the mnemonic "MISME": multiple inherited schwannomas, meningioma, and ependymoma.
