Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Neurofibromatosis-2:
NF2 is characterized by
bilateral (occurring on both sides of the body) tumors on the eighth
cranial nerve. The tumors cause pressure damage to neighboring nerves. To
determine whether an individual has NF2, a physician looks for bilateral
eighth nerve tumors and similar signs and symptoms in a parent, sibling,
or child. Affected individuals may notice hearing loss as early as the
teen years. Other early symptoms may include tinnitus (ringing noise in
the ear) and poor balance. Headache, facial pain, or facial numbness,
caused by pressure from the tumors, may also occur.
