Abstract

Neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1) is an autosomal-dominant disorder with various clinical expressivity and complications. Arterial hypertension may be present in patients with NF1 and is secondary to vasculopathy or pheochromocytoma. We herein describe two children (17 and 4 years old) diagnosed late with NF1 after severe arterial hypertension had been discovered due to pheochromocytoma and middle aortic syndrome. Routine measurement of arterial pressure is mandatory in children with NF1, in order to diagnose the complications of this disease.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 27 July 2021.
All research outputs
#16,176,353
of 20,117,040 outputs
Outputs from Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management
#949
of 1,181 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#222,265
of 292,904 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management
#9
of 12 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 20,117,040 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,181 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 8.0. This one is in the 8th percentile – i.e., 8% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 292,904 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 12 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
