  • CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 50-year-old male patient had a history of three surgical procedures for the removal of a cerebellar hemangioblastoma, initially considered to be a recurrence of a sporadic form at the same location.
  • Pathological examination revealed leptomeningeal spread of the hemangioblastoma.
  • The patient had a poor outcome as a result of progressive tetraplegia and died 6 months after diagnosis as a result of respiratory failure.
  • CONCLUSION: To the best of our knowledge, the clinical course of our patient, consistent with a thick leptomeningeal spread of hemangioblastoma from the posterior fossa to the sacrum, is unique.
  • This case report illustrates the crucial challenge to develop a specific drug therapy related to angiogenesis in von Hippel-Lindau disease.
