We present the clinical and ophthalmological findings, genetic analysis, and therapy of two siblings with NF1 and bilateral OPG. In genetic analysis, a heteroduplex profile was detected in exon 4b of the NF1 gene for the affected patients and mother. Sequencing of the DNA samples identified a C > T nucleotide change in exon 4b (c484CAG > TAG). This nonsense mutation resulted in a change of glutamine to a stop codon (Q162X) and is a novel NF1 gene alteration.
