Congenital heart defects are uncommon among people with NF1, but pulmonic stenosis and coarctation of the aorta appear to occur more often than expected. Double outlet right ventricle (the characteristic cardiac defect in Nf1 -/- mouse models) and other complex cardiac malformations are rare in people with NF1.
