Von Hippel–Lindau (VHL) disease is a rare autosomal dominantly inherited multisystem disorder
characterised by the development of a variety of benign and malignant tumours. We report a case of
VHL disease that was inherited by a daughter from her father, who both presented at a young age
with progressive headache and were found to have a posterior fossa haemangioblastoma (HB) on
magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Multiple benign pancreatic and renal cysts were also noted in
both patients.
