Findings With Unspecified Accuracy

Finding SensitivitySpecificity Comments, Study
Acoustic Neuroma, unilateral Edit No accuracy specified.

Study: no study specified.

The finding of bilateral acoustic neuromas is pathogneumonic for NF2. Therefore the specificity should be 100%

Study: no study specified.
