Thoracic Coarctation Associated With Neurofibromatosis

Am J Dis Child. 1975;129(1):113-115. doi:10.1001/archpedi.1975.02120380083019
Abstract

A child with neurofibromatosis and hypertension also demonstrated renal artery stenosis, the most common cause of hypertension in children with neurofibromatosis; abdominal coarctation, which has previously been described; and thoracic coarctation, which, to our knowledge, has not been previously reported. Rib notching may appear in patients with uncomplicated nueorfibromatosis, but the possibility of associated thoracic coarctation must also be considered in these patients.
