Q85.8 Hippel-Lindau Syndrome

H L syndrome

also known as Hippel-Lindau disease, occasionally also called retino-cerebellar angiomatosis, is a rare, hereditary tumor disease from the group of so-called phakomatoses.[1] Patients develop benign, tumor-like tissue changes (angiomas) primarily in the area of the retina of the eye and the cerebellum. The latter has also been referred to as Lindau tumor or Lindau syndrome.[1]
