Is there any correlation between Spondylolysis and Neurofibromatosis?

I have several cafe-au-lait spots on my body and I have Spondylolysis and I am curious if any studies have found a link between the two.

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. I found this study that is dated in 2009 which states that the correlation is very rare. You can read more here http://smj.sma.org.sg/5008/5008cr6.pdf.


I hope this information helps answer your question.
