  •   von Hippel-Lindau disease

    von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is a hereditary cancer syndrome characterised by the development of vascular tumours of the central nervous system and retina, renal carcinomas, pheochromocytomas, pancreatic islet cell tumours, endolymphatic sac tumours, and benign cysts affecting a variety of organs. VHL is a dominantly inherited syndrome associated with germline mutations of the VHL tumour suppressor gene located on chromosome 3p25. Inactivation or loss of the remaining wild-type allele in a susceptible cell may lead to tumour development.
