The full name is Von Recklinghausens disease or Multiple
Neurofibromatosis.  Basically tumours develop in the nerve sheaths and
present as subcutaneous limps.  Depending on which nerve is affected the
symptoms may vary-  more details may be found in any basic medical
textbook.  It's inherited.  The gene has been mapped.
