10 PREP QuestionYou care for a 5 year old girl who recently received a diagnosis of neurofibromatosis type 1. Her parents tell you that they have read that NF1 is associated with an increased risk for cancers, and they ask you for more information.Of the following, the MOST accurate statement regarding cancers associated with NF1 is that:Leukemia is an unlikely cancer typeLisch nodules predispose to tumors of the eyeOptic glioma most commonly presents at the onset of pubertyPheochromocytoma is common in early childhoodPlexiform neurofibromas may show malignant transformation
11 E. Plexiform neurofibromas may show malignant transformation NF1- facts we haven’t coveredCells have only half the normal amount of intracellular neurofibrominMost tumors are benign, but overall increased risk of malignancy by 5%Plexiform neurofibromas occur in 25% of NF patients, and undergo malignant transformation to neurofibrosarcoma in 10-15%Malignant transformation signs include rapid tumor growth and painRegarding the other choices:A. Leukemia: myeloproliferative and myelodysplastic leukemias are associated with NF1B. Lisch nodules: hamartomas in the iris stroma; benignC. Optic glioma: 15% patients; before age 6; benignD. Pheochromocytoma: increased incidence, occurs in adulthood
