My daughter is 10 years old and was recently diagnosed with NF1. The neurologist she is seeing looked her over for the cafe au lait spots, which he found by the hundreds, and ordered an MRI with contrast and without. When he told us about the MRI, he just said that it showed "consistency with what you expect to see in the brain of a person with NF1". What the heck does that mean exactly? He isn't the best at the whole bedside manner bit...so I didn't ask. I plan on calling and asking to have a copy of the findings sent to our pediatrician so she can explain it to me. However, in the mean time it would be great to know what is "typically" seen in the brain of an NF1 patient?
