Abstract

The visceral manifestations of von Hippel-Lindau syndrome rarely are clinically significant until late in the disease process. Pancreatic endocrine insufficiency in the syndrome is extremely uncommon. We report a case of a 32-year-old woman with von Hippel-Lindau syndrome whose initial diagnosis came to light because of a clinical presentation with complications related to pancreatic endocrine insufficiency.
