Peritumoral cyst formation is commonly associated with hemangioblastomas of the central nervous system. Results of a proteomic profiling of hemangioblastoma cyst fluid suggested that cyst formation, whether intratumoral or peritumoral, is a consequence of vascular leakage because protein profiles of cyst fluid and blood serum were similar. To the best ...
