In recent years an unusual and interesting case came to my attention. After careful biopsies of tissue obtained on two different occasions, a tentative diagnosis of hemangioblastoma with pseudoxanthomatous change was made. The patient's history, the findings at operation and the results of microscopic study led to this conclusion, after a careful review of the more recent journals and available pathologic texts.
