If left unchecked, a neurofibroma can cause severe nerve damage leading to loss of function to the area stimulated by that nerve.....The Rehabilitative Surgery Unit (RSU) at Maiwand Hospital is fully supported by the French NGO Medical Refresher Courses for Afghans (MRCA), also by the French Minister of Foreign Affairs, and by the Embassy of Japan under the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Project (GAGP).
