Splenic lymphangiomas are exceedingly rare benign neoplasms that occur mainly in children. They are commonly seen in the neck and axillary region. Abdominal lymphangiomas accounts for less than 5% of cases. So far, fewer than 100 cases of spleen lymphangiomas have been reported in the literature. In this paper, we present one case of solitary splenic lymphangioma in a 34-year-old woman who presented with abdominal pain and weight loss for one month. The patient underwent splenectomy and diagnosis was confirmed by histopathology and immunohistochemistry studies...

The iliac vein is an extremely rare site for mesenchymal chondrosarcoma, and patients with primary extraskeletal mesenchymal chondrosarcoma arising from a vein always suffer a very poor prognosis. We report a case of a 45-year-old female who presented with a 5-month history of left leg edema in 2015. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography showed a large mass in the left iliac vein with scattered calcifications. Wide-margin resection was performed, and histopathologic and immunohistochemical analyses confirmed the presence of intraluminal mesenchymal chondrosarcoma with local invasion out of the vein wall...
