schwannomatosis(redirected from congenital cutaneous neurilemmomatosis)
schwannomatosisAn inherited predisposition to develop benign tumours of the peripheral nerve sheath (OMIM:162091) that usually occur singly in otherwise normal individuals, which is regarded as a clinical entity distinct from other forms of neurofibromatosis.
Defects in SMARCB1, which encodes a core component of the ATP-dependent chromatin-remodelling BAF (hSWI/SNF) complex with key roles in cell proliferation and differentiation, cause schwannomatosis.
