Schwannomatosis is the most recently recognized form of neurofibromatosis. It causes multiple schwannomas (nerve sheath tumors) to form on the central nervous system and chronic pan. No tumors on the vestibular nerves (as in NF-2) are evident.

The onset of symptoms is usually at puberty or older for both males and females. The precise genetic mechanism of schwannomatosis is unknown at this time.
