Abstract

A review of 36 cases of von Hippel-Lindau disease underscores the important role of the ophthalmologist in evaluating this phakomatosis. Retinal angiomatosis occurred in almost two-thirds of those affected, was usually diagnosed before other target organs, and frequently led to decrease...read more

Von Hippel-Lindau’s Disease

von Hippel-Lindau syndrome (VHL) is a hereditary condition associated with tumors arising in multiple organs. Tumors in VHL include hemangioblastomas, which are blood vessel tumors of the brain, spinal cord, and eye. Here is the latest research.

Kidney Carcinoma

Kidney or renal carcinoma is a malignant tumor that start in the kidney. Renal cell carcinoma and transitional cell carcinoma are the two most common types of kidney cancer. Several factors, both genetic and environmental, have been implicated in this cancer. Here is the latest research.

Retinal Development: Genetics

This feed focuses on genetic, epigenetic, and transcriptomic processes pertaining to retinal development and aging.

Neurocutaneous Syndromes

Neurocutaneous syndromes include congenital disorders involving tumor growth in the brain, spinal cord, organs, skin, and bones. These syndromes include tuberous sclerosis, neurofibromatosis, and Sturge-Weber disease. Find the latest research on neurocutaneous syndromes here.

Cerebellar Neoplasms

Tumors within the cerebellum of the brain can be malignant or benign. This is often a secondary site for metastasis from other cancers, including lung and breast cancer. Symptoms of cerebellar tumors include ataxia and intracranial hypertension. Here is the latest research on cerebellar neoplasms.

Renal Cell Carcinoma

Renal cell carcinoma, the most common type of kidney cancer, originates in the lining of the proximal convoluted tubule. Both genetic and lifestyle factors have been implicated with increased risk of developing this cancer. Here is the latest research on renal cell carcinoma.

Neurocutaneous Syndromes (MDS)

Neurocutaneous syndromes include congenital disorders involving tumor growth in the brain, spinal cord, organs, skin, and bones. These syndromes include tuberous sclerosis, neurofibromatosis, and Sturge-Weber disease. Find the latest research on neurocutaneous syndromes here.

Retinal Development And Aging: Genetics
