Brain imaging


Hemangioblastomas are benign brain tumors that most often arise in the cerebellum or brainstem.

These relatively uncommon benign tumors are comprised of blood vessels and typically arise in the cerebellum, but can also occur in the brainstem and spinal cord.

Hemangioblastomas may also occur in patients with Von Hippel-Lindau disease, an inherited autosomal dominant condition in which both benign and malignant tumors develop including retinal angiomas, pancreatic cysts, pheochromocytoma and renal cell carcinoma.

Symptomatic hemangioblastomas generally require surgical removal. Our centers of excellence have a large experience treating these tumors with minimally invasive keyhole approaches.
