Quality of Friendships in Children With Neurofibromatosis: Relationship to Disease Severity
You (your) child will be asked to complete a short questionnaire (40 questions) about their
relationship with their best friend. Doctors will review your (child's) medical chart to
find out how severe the disease is, so that this may be compared to the answers you have
(your child has) given on the friendship questionnaire.
This is an Investigational Study. About 90-100 children and adolescents with NF-1 will be
asked to take part in this study. All will be enrolled at M.D. Anderson.
Observational Model: Case-Only, Time Perspective: Prospective
