CT scanning for the diagnosis of the cerebellar and spinal lesions of von Hippel-Lindau's disease

Summary

The CT features of cerebellar lesions with von Hippel-Lindau's disease are analyzed. The use of CT scanning for associated spinal hemangioblastomas is discussed in the light of a case with a low cervical lesion. The role of computed tomography in the neuroradiological investigations is discussed.
