-Hypopigmented spots, in combination with a family history of bilateral deafness, strongly suggest neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF-2), an autosomal-dominant disorder. The spots described actually represent cafe-au-lait spots that are usually hypopigmented (unlike the hyperpigmented cafe-au-lait spots found in NF-1 ). Deafness is caused by bilateral acoustic neuromas, a characteristic neurologic manifestation of the syndrome.
