Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndrome is characterized by hemangioblastomas of the brain, spinal cord, and retina; renal cysts and clear cell. Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is an inherited disorder characterized by the abnormal growth of both benign and cancerous tumors and cysts in many parts of .

Trends Genet, 14pp. Therapeutic modalities used to treat retinal hemangioblastomas include diathermy, xenon, laser, and cryocoagulation, with variable degrees of success depending on the location, size, and number of lesions.

Von Hippel–Lindau disease

A recent study of 15 symptomatic individuals with cauda equina hemangioblastomas revealed a worse outcome in only one individual six months after surgery. Genetics of hereditary head and neck paragangliomas. If the pathogenic variant in a family is known, molecular genetic testing can be used to clarify the genetic status of at-risk family members to eliminate the need for surveillance of family members who have not inherited the pathogenic variant. Recommended medical surveillance for pregnant women with VHL is still debated.


Papillary adenoma of endolymphatic sac origin: See Molecular Genetics for information on allelic variants detected in this gene.

A year-old woman presented with otalgia and hearing loss. Archived from the original on Congenital erythrocytosis is endemic in subpopulations worldwide; pathogenic variants in VHL are the most common cause of congenital erythrocytosis [ Pastore et al ]. Retinal hemangioblastoma in von Hippel-Lindau disease: However, other organs can be affected: GeneReviews Advanced Search Help.

Von Hippel-Lindau Disease

However, recent evidence also suggests that there is a haploinsufficient cellular environment prior to the somatic inactivation of the wildtype allele that can promote dysplastic growth lindwu Peri et al ]. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: Continuing navigation will be considered as acceptance of this use. According to their results, surveillance for retinal angiomas is essential during teenage years and CNS hemangioblastomas is mainly important in adults. New von Hippel-Lindau manifestations develop at the same vin decreased rates in pregnancy.

Similar results were demonstrated for local tumor control after stereotactic therapy: American Society of Clinical Oncology policy statement update: Long-term use of intravitreal bevacizumab avastin for the treatment of von hippel-lindau associated retinal hemangioblastomas.

Such patients should be systematically investigated for clinical and molecular evidence of VHL disease. Check for retinal hemangioblastomas.

A VHL cryptic-exon termed E1′ deep in intron 1 is naturally expressed in many tissues, and results in a amino acid protein that contains the first amino acids encoded by exon 1, followed by 79 additional amino acids of unknown function encoded by E1′ [ Lenglet et al ]. The article suggests that the McCoy family was predisposed to bad tempers because many of them had a pheochromocytoma which produced excess adrenaline and a tendency toward explosive tempers.


As ophthalmologic screening for those at risk for VHL syndrome begins as early as possible, certainly before age five years, molecular genetic testing may be considered in young children.

Pancreatic tumors are generally slow growing and are not hormonally active, although they can cause metastatic disease. Two or more hemangioblastomas of the retina, spine, or brain or a single hemangioblastoma in association with a visceral manifestation e. J Am Med Ass,pp.

It results from an inactivation of VHL, a tumor suppressor gene located on chromosome 3p While current medical surveillance guidelines do not address structured psychological support for individuals with VHL, their partners, and their family members, research suggests a distinct need for psychosocial support [ Lammens et alLammens et al b ].

In ten individuals with VHL, 18 successful operations were performed.

Binderup et al [b] enfermedsd a male with demonstrable hearing loss by audiometric data whose ELST was only detectable with MRI more than one year later, after he already had complete right-sided hearing loss.
