A case of a young patient diagnosed with the Hippel-Lindau disease c.571 C>G mutation (Croatian form) and multiple paragangliomas after developing ischemic stroke


Correlation between erythrocytosis and ischemic stroke is very common and not at least unusual. I present the case of a young patient who was first diagnosed with secondary erythrocytosis and after he developed an ischemic stroke more detailed diagnosis was made. He was then diagnosed with VHL c.571 C>G mutation (Croatian type). This case shows us the importance of scrutinizing cases, especially in very young patients.
