Sažetak
Clinical topic: This case report stresses the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of an eight year old boy with a rare oncological disease - neurofibromatosis type I. Case presentation: Neurofibromatosis is a multisystem genetic disorder that is characterized by cutaneous pigmentation, skeletal dysplasia, the growth of benign and malignant nervous system tumours, most notably benign neurofibromas as well as changes in the eye. The incidence of the disease is 1:3000-4000 live-born children. It may be accompanied by mental retardation with learning disorder ; Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in addition to prominent motor activity and disability. Children faced with the severity of this malignant illness display diverse emotional reactions, with physical responses and various behavioural changes. This may also cause changes in cognitive functioning, often leading to low achievement at school and diminished self-confidence. We present a case of an eight year old boy with behavioural and learning disabilities referred for psychological and psychiatric evaluation. Treatment of children with neurofibromatosis requires a multidisciplinary approach with cooperation of various medical professionals, educationalists and parents. Of particular importance is the psychological, ophthalmological and speech therapist assessment by which the most appropriate form of education is determined depending on the degree of intellectual disability and the presence of other accompanying symptoms of the disease. Action taken: Upon evaluation the appropriate form of education was determined including ophthalmological assessment, speech therapy, special education, psychiatric treatment, counselling and support to parents with the aim of reducing psychomotor disorder, visual disability and assistance in learning and thereby reducing frustration and improving self-esteem. Conclusion: The aim of this paper was to emphasize the importance of team work with a multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of complex hereditary diseases without underestimating the important role of ophthalmologist and psychiatrists.
