A recent study showed a decrease in new VHL manifestations during pregnancy [ Binderup et al ]. Type I Type II. Mosaicism in von Hippel-Lindau disease: Ala 65 Val, p. The disease is caused by mutations of the von Hippel—Lindau tumor suppressor VHL gene on the short arm of chromosome 3 3p Depending on the size and location of the tumor, nephron-sparing or partial nephrectomy may be possible without compromising survival [ Grubb et al ].

Intravitreal injections of bevacizumab, another VEGF inhibitor, have also proven effective in treating retinal hemangioblastomas in individuals with VHL [ Hrisomalos et al ].

Because early detection of at-risk individuals affects medical management, testing of asymptomatic individuals during childhood is beneficial [ Binderup et al aVHL Handbook ].

Differences in perspective may exist among medical professionals and in families regarding the use of prenatal testing, particularly if the testing is being considered for the purpose of pregnancy termination rather than early diagnosis.
