En la NF tipo 2 el tumor insignia y mas frecuentemente visto es el Schwannoma vestibular en forma uni o bilateral causante de sordera neurosensorial (14, 15) ademas de compresion a nivel de tallo cerebral que resulta en morbilidad neurologica severa y mortalidad; entre otros tumores vistos en NF2 encontramos el meningioma intracraneal en el 50% de los casos, schwannomas en otros nervios craneales, siendo mas raro encontrar ependimomas o astrocitomas; y los tumores espinales que incluyen schwannomas, meningiomas y ependimomas en el 75%; el hallazgo ocular mas frecuente es la catarata subcapsular posterior, siendo en ocasiones el signo mas temprano (5,7,16,17).
