Abstract

Objective: This retrospective case series analyzes two cases of hemangioblastomas in the cervicomedullary junction. Methods: A survey of the pediatric staff and of the operative reports from medical records with a review of the literature and medical records of patients with the condition was conducted. Results: Two patients were successfully treated surgically. Conclusion: Surgery is the treatment of choice for hemangioblastomas of the cervicomedullary junction. Careful monitoring for unique complications, treatment of the tumor as a vascular malformation, and screening for von Hippel Lindau must all be employed to safely care for this challenging group of patients.
