ABSTRACT
Papillary cystadenoma of the epididymis is a rare benign tumor that represents the epididymal component of von Hippel-Lindau Syndrome. A case of epididymal papillary cystadenoma is presented in a 36 years old man. He also had pancreatic cysts, the pancreatic component of von Hippel-Lindau syndrome. His younger brother, who died of intracranial hemorrhage at age 27, revealed hemangioblastoma of the cerebellum, angioma of the retina and renal cell carcinoma on radiologic studies. These findings suggest familial occurrence of von Hippel-Lindau syndrome.
Key Words: Papillary cystadenoma; Epididymis; von Hippel-Lindau syndrome
