Abstract

Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is an inherited disorder often associated with optic nerve gliomas, low-grade brain tumors, and readily visible signs. Though these features are frequently emphasized, the psychosocial and emotional morbidities are often overlooked. We present a patient with depressive disorder resulting in suicide in a patient with NF1.
