Abstract

We report a rare case of a woman with bilateral papillary cystadenomata of the broad ligament with von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL) (other manifestations: capillary hemangioblastomas of the spinal cord). Patient surveillance is important, because in the course of VHL-associated tumors malignant lesions may arise that are relevant for the prognosis.
