Background: To present a case of conjunctival lymphangioma in a 4-year-old girl with tuberous sclerosis complex. Methods/results: A 4-year-old girl presented with a relapsing cystic lesion of the bulbar conjunctiva in the right eye with string-of-pearl-like dilation of lymphatic vessels and right-sided facial swelling with mild pain. Best-corrected vision was not impaired. Examination of the skin revealed three hypomelanotic macules and a lumbal Shagreen patch. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings displayed minimal enhancement of buccal fat on the right side...

The authors report the case of a 34-year-old male, who underwent a fluorine-18 fluoro deoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scan 7 years after trauma for the evaluation of multifocal masses in the right iliac and right inguinal areas. CT findings showed multifocal low density masses and (18)F-FDG PET revealed slightly increased uptake (maximum standardized uptake value [SUVmax] 3.1). These findings did not exclude the possibility of a benign or malignant lesion. To achieve differential diagnosis, partial surgical excision was performed and a pathologic examination subsequently revealed lymphangioma...

Cervical lymphangioma can cause airway obstruction secondary to enlargement following infection. Physicians should be aware that the airway obstruction can progress rapidly when patients with cervical lymphangioma have respiratory symptoms. Sclerotherapy for lymphangioma can cause both transient swelling and airway obstruction; thus, prophylactic and elective tracheostomy should be considered.

PURPOSE: A ranula is a pseudocyst caused by mucous extravasation from the sublingual gland. Recently, a sclerosing agent, OK-432 (picibanil), has been reported to be highly effective for treating lymphangioma and cervical cystic lesions. The present study assessed the effectiveness of OK-432 injection therapy for intraoral ranula to clarify whether it can be used as the primary treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The present study was a retrospective clinical study of patients with intraoral ranula who received OK-432 injection therapy from 2005 to 2015...

Lymphangioma is a congenital lesion of childhood. They usually present in head and neck region. Intra-abdominal lymphangioma in an adult is a rare lesion which poses diagnostic difficulty. Although asymptomatic, they may present with an acute abdomen. Here, we report a rare case of huge asymptomatic retro-peritoneal lymphangioma who underwent complete surgical excision with an uneventful postoperative period.

INTRODUCTION: Solitary cavernous lymphangioma is very rare disease characterized by abnormally proliferating lymphatic vessels. We report a 49-year-old woman with a cavernous pulmonary lymphangioma showing rapid growth after remaining indolent for 10 years. PRESENTATION OF CASE: Chest computed tomography revealed a solitary, poorly demarcated mass in the left lower lobe; however, the tumour grew in size over the next 6 months. A left lower lobectomy was performed following suspected lung cancer...

BACKGROUND: Sometimes acquired lymphangiectasia (lymphangioma circumscriptum), the pathological mechanism of which is unknown, accompanies lymphedema. The purpose of this study was to better understand the pathological changes present in acquired lymphangiectasia. METHODS AND RESULTS: We examined the pathological characteristics of acquired lymphangiectasia with lymphedema among patients treated at the University of Tokyo Hospital from March 2008 to December 2015...

Pathologists who find ectopic glands on the glans and/or on the prepuce, often describe them as Tyson's glands. In this regard, the term Tyson's glands can be replaced by two different descriptive expressions: papillomatosis corona penis and ectopic sebaceous glands. A 15-year old Caucasian male patient presented to our Institute with multiple and asymptomatic circular skin colored-to-yellowish papules at the level of the foreskin, also affecting the shaft of the penis, where they assumed a linear feature. The histological examination revealed hyperplastic and dilated sebaceous glands, while in some areas these glands showed also a direct attachment with the epidermis...

Postoperative chylous leak is often a consequence of thoracic duct injury during surgical procedures. Persistent chylothorax can be an extremely morbid condition. The authors describe a case of a refractory and long-standing chylous leak after thoracotomy for mediastinal lymphangioma removal. The patient was treated with a computed tomography-guided percutaneous thoracic duct sclero-embolization after failure of the conventional therapies. The chest tube output abruptly decreased after the procedure and was removed at 13th day...

BACKGROUND: Lymphangiomas are a heterogeneous group of congenital vascular malformations characterized by cystic dilation of lymphatic vessels. They can occur at any age, but they are more common during childhood and in cutaneous localizations. Hemangiomas and vascular malformations of the gastrointestinal tract are very uncommon. Most are asymptomatic and diagnosis is often made as an incidental finding during endoscopy. On rare occasions the initial manifestation can be chronic anemia due to low grade gastrointestinal bleeding...

Lymphangioma is a rare benign tumor that occurs due to abnormalities occurring during lymphatic development. It is usually seen in children and young adults. The incidence of lymphangiomas in the gastrointestinal tract is very low. Here we describe the case of 43-year-old woman with lymphangioma of the ileum with infiltrative polyposis-like appearing lesions diagnosed by capsule endoscopy and treated with segmental resection of affected intestinal part with laparotomy. Lesions involving mesentery and ileum were confirmed by pathology...

Though the lymphangioma is a benign neoplasm, it may make an invasion to vital structures by progressively growing. For lymphangioma, which progressed in such a way, surgical treatment has high morbidity and recurrence risk. On these cases, OK-432 is a frequently used sclerotherapy agent. The authors report the result they obtained by the use of single-dose OK-432 on an inoperable pediatric cervical macrocystic lymphangioma case and also their experiences.

Lymphangiomas are uncommon congenital hamartomas of the lymphatic system, usually diagnosed in infancy and early childhood. They are rarely situated in oral cavity and most commonly identified on the anterior two-thirds of the tongue. Though rarely seen in the oral cavity, lymphangiomas are the entities which should be taken into consideration by the clinician while examining vesicular lesions of the oral cavity. Early recognition is of utmost importance for the initiation of proper treatment and to avoid serious complications...
