Sleep apnoea syndrome caused by neurofibromatosis and superior vena caval obstruction.

Abstract:
Superior vena caval (SVC) obstruction is usually caused by malignant conditions but benign causes have been reported in as many as 26% of cases. We describe a patient with mediastinal neurofibromata who developed SVC obstruction, upper airways oedema, and gross sleep apnoea syndrome. We can find no previously documented cases of sleep apnoea caused by SVC obstruction.
