Daria Riva Neurofibromatosis type-1 (NF1) is a monogenic tumor-predisposition syndrome creating a wide variety of cognitive and behavioral abnormalities, such as decrease in cognitive functioning, deficits in visuospatial processing, attention, and social functioning. NF1 patients are at risk to develop neurofibromas and other tumors, such as optic pathway gliomas and other tumors of the central nervous system. Few studies have investigated the impact of an additional diagnosis of brain tumor on the cognitive outcome of children with NF1, showing unclear results and without controlling by the effect of surgery, radio-...

These may vary from benignity to malignancy. They exhibit a wide diversity ranging from benign fibroma to malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor. These can be neural, myofibroblastic, fibroblastic, muscle, vascular, odontogenic, epithelial in origin. Such variable tissues involved provide a diagnostic challenge to the oral pathologists. Among these, neural tumors are very rare i...

Eoli Paola Riva Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are known to regulate gene expression at the transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels, chromatin remodeling, and signal transduction. The identification of different species of ncRNAs, microRNAs (miRNAs), circular RNAs (circRNAs), and long ncRNAs (lncRNAs)—and in some cases, their combined regulatory function on specific target genes—may help to elucidate their role in biological processes. NcRNAs’ deregulation has an impact on the impairment of physiological programs, driving cells in cancer development. We here carried out a review of lit...

A patient with neurofibromatosis type 1 presented to the pain clinic with neuropathic pain. Thoracolumbar magnetic resonance imagining revealed meningocele T12–L2 with cauda equina distortion. After becoming pregnant, the patient interrupted opioid treatment, refusing pharmacological treatment until the pain became unbearable. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) was proposed. The patient used this treatment from the first trimester until month 6 postpartum, achieving good analgesia without any adverse effects for the mother or child. TENS may be a viable treatment for neuropathic pain (NP) during pregn...

AbstractIntroductionPatients with NF2 who are deaf or have significant hearing loss face numerous and unique challenges which lead to poor quality of life, and thus may benefit from resiliency programs.MethodsWe performed secondary data analyses on a single blind, randomized controlled trial of an 8  week mind–body resiliency program (the Relaxation Response and Resiliency program for Deaf NF2; d3RP-NF2) versus a health education control (Health Enhancement Program for Deaf NF2;dHEP-NF2) which showed improvement in quality of life (Funes in JAMA 2019,https://doi.org/10.1007/s11060-019-03182-3). Here we report on...
