Neurofibromatosis and Bone Fractures
You have already given a reply to a question regarding this matter. However we now know that the mother and elder child both have neurofibrosis if the baby has this condition could this have any bearing on the case.
Yes. Neurofibromatosis may cause defects to bone. Defective bones may fracture more easily than normal bones.
