Hemangioblastoma is a benign, highly vascular tumor that can occur in the brain, spinal cord, and retina. This tumor accounts for about 2–3% of brain tumors. As it expands, it creates pressure on the brain and can cause neurological symptoms such as headache, weakness, sensory loss, impaired balance and co-ordination, and/or hydrocephalus. In this case study, a middle-aged female patient, a known case of multiple cystic lesions (hemangioblastoma) in brain with ventriculoperitoneal shunt, presented with weakness of legs, giddiness, stiffness in body, and difficulty in speech for eight years. The first Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of brain was done in 1997 which revealed chronic hydrocephalous with superadded atrophic changes and cystic lesion in the region of left foramen of luschka. The patient was treated on the line of Aavranajanya vata vyadhi. Ayurvedic medicines along with Yoga therapy was advised and continued for ten months. The patient showed marked improvement in the clinical signs and symptoms. Brain MRI of the patient also showed decrease in the size of the lesion as compared to the previous scan.
