The renal lesions associated with von Hippel-Lindau disease exhibited wide differences in growth. The majority of renal cysts grew slowly but some involuted. Transition to solid renal cancer was rare among cysts. Complex cystic and solid lesions contained neoplastic tissue that uniformly enlarged. These data may be used to help predict the progression of renal lesions in von Hippel-Lindau disease.
