Von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHLD) is characterized by a spectrum of benign and malignant tumors in the CNS and visceral organs. Rathke's cleft cysts are benign, nonneoplastic sellar lesions that are often asymptomatic. The authors report the case of twin sisters with VHLD Type 2C with radiographically similar sellar lesions. One twin required surgery for progressive visual loss. Pathological examination of resected tissue demonstrated Rathke's cleft cyst.
