Lindau disease

von Hip·pel-Lin·dau syn·drome

(făn hip'el lan'dow), [MIM*193300]
a type of phacomatosis, consisting of retinal vascular malformations, which may be multiple and bilateral, associated with hemangioblastomas primarily of the cerebellum and walls of the fourth ventricle, occasionally involving the spinal cord; sometimes associated with renal cell carcinomas or cysts or hamartomas of kidney, adrenal, or other organs; autosomal dominant inheritance due to mutation in the von Hippel-Lindau gene (VHL) on 3p.

Nonetheless, a correct diagnosis is important for patients, as hemangioblastoma is a benign disease, which does not need any further treatment after surgery, unlike malignant CCRCC or adrenocortical carcinoma [56]; even more, a diagnosis of HBL warrants further evaluation for von Hippel Lindau disease. The peculiar clinicopathological features of renal HBL, which affects older individuals and more frequently presents as a solid mass in comparison to its CNS counterpart [37], complicate the differential diagnosis versus other renal tumors.

In addition, Von Hippel Lindau disease is a rare autosomal-dominant genetic disorder with variable penetrance which is characterized by hemangioblastomas in brain, spinal cord and retina, pheochromocytomas, and multiple renal and pancreatic cysts with an increased risk of malignant transformation.
She was evaluated for the syndromic associations particularly for von Hippel Lindau disease because of the presence of cerebellar lesions suggestive of hemangioblastomas.
pancreatic cysts are more common in von Hippel Lindau disease (vHL).
