A case of central neurofibromatosis with various associated neurological abnormalities is reported. Apart from symptoms of eighth nerve involvement the patient had a hypotonic, hyporeflexic quadriparesis. Radiology revealed scoliosis, an intramedullary spinal tumour, bilateral acoustic neurinoma, tectal glioma and hydrocephalus. In view of the rapid progression of the disease process a palliative shunt procedure was carried out without any definitive surgery. The various ravages of nervous system in NF2 are discussed along with a brief review of literature.
