Occurrence of Cerebellar Haemangioblastoma in a 13-Year-Old Girl with Neurofibromatosis Type 2: Report of a Case and Discussion of the Literature

John Ouma*,Dereje Mamo and Marcus Gritzman

Neurofibromatosis is a condition that can occur in a number of forms, the commonest of which are types 1 and 2. As a group, they fall under the phacomatoses family of conditions, otherwise known as neurocutaneous syndromes, owing to the fact that they concurrently have disorders of the nervous system and the integument, which organs share a common ectodermal origin. Other examples include Schwannomatosis and Von Hippel Lindau syndromes. We describe a case of a young girl who presented with features of NF2 and was discovered to have a cerebellar hemangioblastoma at the same time. We are not aware of this association being described in the literature.
