Taking the institution of the Italian Neuroectodermosis Register (Fois, April 1987) as a starting point, the Authors reviewed their own case-records, including six cases of neurofibromatosis and five cases of tuberous sclerosis, observed during the period 1982/88, and stress the need for early diagnosis (unfortunately often neglected), indispensable both for an effective prevention of any pathological involvement and for precise genetic counselling, susceptible of further improvements thanks to more and more advanced diagnostic techniques.
