Multiple Neurilemmomas in Birt-Hogg-Dube Syndrome: Case Report
The Journal of Hand Surgery, 04/13/2012
Renfree KJ et al. – The authors present a case of a young woman with Birt–Hogg–Dube syndrome and multiple neurilemmomas involving different nerves in a single extremity. Birt–Hogg–Dube is an uncommon but increasingly recognized syndrome. Hand surgeons may wish to consider this disease when faced with a patient with multiple neurilemmomas, especially when associated with renal tumors, spontaneous pneumothoraces, or other benign or malignant neural or non–neural tumors.
