Epitheloid hemangioendothelioma bone

Imran Nizami, Shamayel Mohammed, Mohei El Din Abouzied
We describe a case of pulmonary epitheloid hemangioendothelioma (PEH) in a 13 years old girl, the aggressive nature of the tumor in this particular case and the PET CT findings. PEH are rare tumors of vascular origin, first described by Dial and Liebow in 1975. This is an uncommon pulmonary neoplasm, 4 times more common in young women. This tumor can affect multiple organs (lung, liver, bones and soft tissue, skin, heart, central nervous system). However lung and liver represent 2 main locations. Clinical manifestations are variable; typically patients are asymptomatic, and PEH is detected on routine chest radiographs as bilateral small (1 cm or less) nodules in the lungs Diagnosis usually requires a surgical lung biopsy...

AIM: To evaluate morbidity, oncologic results and functional outcome in patients with malignant tumors of pelvis treated with limb sparing resection. METHODS: Between March 2002 and November 2010, 106 cases of non metastatic malignant pelvic tumors were treated with limb sparing resections of pelvis. Diagnosis included chondrosarcoma (65), Ewing's sarcoma (25), osteogenic sarcoma (10), synovial sarcoma (3) and malignant fibrous histiocytoma, high grade sarcoma, epitheloid hemangiothelioma (1 each)...

A 40 year-old female was examined for complaints of left arm pain and restriction of movement in the left upper extremity for 3 months. Chest X-ray showed a mass in the left upper lung and the patient was evaluated with computed tomography that confirmed the significant mass in the left paratracheal region and also showed small nodules in both of the lungs. A whole-body FDG-PET scan was performed for the suspicion of malignancy. FDG-PET indicated high FDG accumulation in the lung lesions mainly in the left paratracheal region...

Bacillary angiomatosis is a rather frequent infectious pathology appearing mainly in the skin but can also affect the liver, spleen, heart, bones, lungs, muscles, central nervous system and other organs. The localization of the lesion in the oral cavity is rather rare, as it is evident in the literature. Bacillary angiomatosis can be clinically similar to the Kaposi's sarcoma and histologically confused with angiosarcoma, epitheloid hemangioma and pyogenic granuloma. A case of bacillary angiomatosis of the oral cavity in an immuno-competent patient is described...

BACKGROUND: Epitheloid hemangioendothelioma is a rare malignant tumor which can involve bones, liver, lungs, kidneys, deep soft tissue, muscles, dermis, and central nervous system. Multifocal disease occurs in 10% of the cases. The clinical presentation results from occlusion of small blood vessels due to the disease itself or as a paraneoplastic syndrome. CASE REPORT: We present a patient with symptoms suggesting systemic vasculitis (ESR and CRP elevated, weight loss, arthralgia, livedoid rash, and skin ulcerations) who finally was diagnosed having a disseminated epitheloid hemangioendothelioma when PET scan revealed hypermetabolic multifocal skeletal and soft tissue lesions...

Epitheloid hemangiomas are benign vascular lesions composed of epitheloid endothelial-cell-lined channels. We report an unusual case of a purely extradural non-osseous spinal epitheloid hemangioma presenting with quadriparesis. A 5-year-old boy presented with neck pain and quadriparesis following a trivial fall. MRI revealed a mixed intensity extradural lesion compressing the cervico-thoracic spinal cord posteriorly. At surgery the lesion consisted of vascular granulation tissue admixed with blood clots without abnormal vessels...

We describe the case of a 70-year-old man with unicentric grade 1 epitheloid hemangioendothelioma (EH) of the bone that favourably responded to intravenous pamidronate as a single agent. After 6 years of follow-up, the patient was in complete remisssion. We suggest that use of bisphosphonates should be considered in the treatment of osteolytic EH.

Epitheloid hemangioendothelioma of bone is a rare primary bone malignancy. Diagnosis can be difficult for physicians who are not experienced with bone neoplasms. We also had difficulties in diagnosis and treatment in one of our patients with a multicentric epitheloid hemangioendothelioma involving the pelvis, left femur, and left tibia. We recommend a complete skeletal survey with magnetic resonance imaging because it can reveal previously undetected lesions on conventional radiographs. We performed an extraarticular resection of the hip joint including the spina iliaca anterior inferior, resection of the femur, and amputation of the lower leg...

BACKGROUND: Hemangioendothelioma of the bone is a rare vasoformative tumor of the bone with an intermediately aggressive nature. The tumor is said to have a long clinical course depending on the sites involved. Diagnosis is particularly difficult since vascular tumors of the bone often present heterogeneous differentiation. CASE REPORT: We report on a 65-year-old female patient who had been diagnosed with an epitheloid hemangioendothelioma of the iliac bone and who underwent wide local excision...
