Schwannomatosis is a form of neurofibromatosis that causes tumors called schwannomas to grow on the outer covering (sheath) of the nerve. Individuals with schwannomas do not develop the auditory tumors associated with NF2. It is unclear how many people suffer from this disorder but some reports indicate that schwannomatosis may occur in approximately 1 in 40,000 births similar to NF2. Pain is usually the first symptom of schwannomatosis.
