Abstract

Neurofibromatosis type 1 is a common autosomal dominant condition that affects about 1 in 5000 people. We describe a 75-year-old man who, in addition to many classic developmental changes of the disease in his skin, eyes and nervous system, had blindness in his right eye as a complication.
