Uses

This medication is used to treat people who have a certain inherited disorder (von Hippel-Lindau disease). People with this disease may form tumors and fluid-filled sacs (cysts) in many different parts of the body. Tumors may be either noncancerous or cancerous. This medication is not a cure for von Hippel-Lindau disease. It is used to help treat certain tumors/growths caused by this disease that do not need surgery right away (such as in the kidneys, pancreas, brain/spinal cord). Belzutifan works by slowing or stopping the growth of tumor cells.
