Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is an autosomal dominantly inherited familial cancer syndrome which predisposes individuals to a variety of malignant and benign tumors. Its penetrance is almost 100% by 61-70 years of age. We have identified a germline mutation in the VHL gene of a Japanese male patient with a retinal hemangioma in the left eye, an… (More)
