Abstract

Thoracic abnormalities occur in approximately 15% of patients with neurofibromatosis (von Recklinghausen's disease). Roentgenologic demonstration of neurogenous tumors, arising from the mediastinal or intercostal nerves, and intrathoracic meningocele is frequent. That interstitial pulmonary disease may complicate neurofibromatosis is not as well known. This paper reports six patients with neurofibromatosis with roentgenographic changes consistent with interstitial or cystic lung disease.
