Clinical Management of VHL

Clinical management of a patient with VHL requires comprehensive serial screening with regular follow-up as well as surgical intervention. Von Hippel-Lindau patients have a greater than 70% lifetime risk of CRCCs, which cause death of 15-50% of patients. Annual imaging [computed tomography (CT) and/or ultrasonography] is suggested, in addition to renal surgery.

Surgical resection is also recommended for central nervous system HABs (located in the cerebellum, spine, and brain stem)
