Torso of an adult male patient suffering from the inherited disorder of neurofibromatosis (Recklinghausen's disease). Benign (non-cancerous) skin tumours, called neurofibromas, arising from the fibrous covering of nerves characterise this disease. Although these growths are harmless they can lead to physical deformity.
