Abstract

Von Hippel-Lindau Disease, a multisystem familial cancer syndrome, is inherited as an autosomal-dominant trait. Common manifestations of the disease are retinal, cerebellar and medullary hemangioblastomas; renal cysts and carcinomas; pancreatic cysts; pheochromocytoma; and papilllary cystadenoma of the epididym. We report the case of a 40-year-old man with type I von Hippel-Lindau disease treated with external radiotherapy for recurrent cerebellar hemangioblastoma.
