The hormonal and hemodynamic effects of pregnancy accelerate the growth of hemangioblastomas in Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome (VHL), leading to increased symptoms and risk to both the mother and fetus. A review of the literature on the treatment of VHL in pregnancy would suggest surgical intervention should be considered with worsening clinical status. Introducing this review is a description of our patient with VHL, who uniquely presented in pregnancy with a cervical hemangioblastoma.
