Abstract OBJECTIVE: To analyse the distributions of and generate growth charts for stature and occipitofrontal circumference (OFC) in neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1) patients. DESIGN: Cross sectional database survey. SETTING: The National Neurofibromatosis Foundation International Database (NFDB) includes clinical information on NF1 patients from 14 participating centres in North America. SUBJECTS: A total of 569 white, North American, NF1 patients, 55\% female and 45\% male. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Stature and OFC measurements of NF1 patients were compared to age and sex matched population norms using z score standardisation and centile curves. RESULTS: The distributions of stature and OFC are shifted and unimodal among NF1 patients; 13\% of patients have short stature (>/=2 standard deviations below the population mean) and 24\% have macrocephaly (OFC >/=2 standard deviations above the population mean). CONCLUSIONS: Alterations of stature and OFC are not limited to NF1 patients with frank short stature or macrocephaly.
