  Abstract:
  Von Hippel-Lindau disease is an inherited autosomal dominant disorder that occurs equally in the sexes. In this extremely rare disease the common abnormalities that occur are retinal hemangioblastoma (50%), cerebellar or spinal hemangioblastoma (50%), renal carcinoma (30%) and pheochromocytoma (10%). Magnetic resonance imaging is a very sensitive diagnostic modality for detection of CNS abnormalities. This report indicates that proton density sequence presented the highest sensitivity for detection of both ocular involvement and tumor hypervascularity.
  Key words: von Hippel-Lindau disease; Hemangioblastoma; MRI
