The subject of hemangioblastoma has been amply discussed by Lindau,1 and Cushing and Bailey2 have reviewed the subject and the literature thoroughly in their recent book. It is not the purpose of this presentation to dwell on the histopathology of this type of tumor so much as on the diagnostic difficulties offered by the unusual associated changes of the spinal cord found in our material. The first case presented a clinical picture of multiple sclerosis which was recognized early. Syphilis of the central nervous system and tumor were also considered. In the second case, although a tumor was suspected, the unusual changes in the spinal cord suggested a degenerative or inflammatory disease of the cerebrospinal system. Aside from these observations, there are other interesting features which will be brought out in the report and discussion of the cases.
