Our expert says:
I was sorry to learn about your husband's NF problems. The condition is very variable, but it is unlikely that the grandmother's white hair patch is a manifestation of NF. Assuming that your husband has NF rather than just an isolated neurofibroma, the chances of any child fathered by him inheritng the NF gene would be 50/50. Your paediatrician could check out your baby for any early signs of NF.
