The presence of retinal capillary hemangioblastoma and cerebellar hemangioblastoma in the context of Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome (VHL) is not characteristically associated with other ophthalmologic conditions. Here, we report the case of a 22-yearold female with a history of bilateral primary congenital glaucoma who presented with a right juxtapapillary retinal capillary hemangioblastoma and an old hemiretinal vein occlusion in which the retinal capillary hemangioblastoma was likely the contributing factor. Her systemic work up was positive for VHL syndrome and revealed the presence of a fatal large brainstem hemangioblastoma. To our knowledge, the association of VHL and congenital glaucoma and/or retinal venous occlusion has not been reported.
