A histologically benign tumor, usually cystic with a vascular mural nodule, that is most often found in the cerebellum though it has been reported at other sites within the neuraxis. It is associated with von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL gene located on chr 3p25-26). - (Source - Diseases Database)

Hemangioblastoma is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Hemangioblastoma, or a subtype of Hemangioblastoma, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
