VON HIPPEL LINDAU SYNDROME AND SURVEILLANCE: A FIVE YEAR FOLLOW UP CASE REPORT
AbstractVon Hipple Lindau disease is a rare genetic autosomal dominant disorder, characterized by formation of tumors and fluid-filled cysts (sacs) in multiple organs of the body, which also carry a potential for malignancy. We are reporting a case of a young 20 years old female who presented to our department with von Hipple Lindau disease.
