Pancreatic Involvement in VHL Disease: The Turin Experience


Introduction: Von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL) is a rare heritable genetic syndrome. Its typical manifestations concern CNS but it may affect other organs such as the pancreas.

Aim(s): Our objective was to study pancreatic involvement in VHL patients to obtain confirmation with current literature.

Materials and methods: We included all the patients who referred to our center for follow-up of VHL disease: we considered the ones with pancreatic involvement (simple cysts, SCAs or pNETs). We collected data about patients (demographics and medical history) and about pancreatic lesions (imaging features, hystological and cytological analysis).
