INTRODUCTION: Lymphangioma accounts for 5% of benign pediatric tumors and less than 1% is located in the abdomen. While mesenteric lymphatic malformation or mesenteric lymphangioma (ML), mostly appears asymptomatic in adults, an acute clinical presentation is seen more often in children. Symptoms can mimic obstruction or peritonitis and diagnosis can therefore be challenging. Imaging studies are performed to exclude other causes of obstruction or peritonitis. Diagnosis of ML is always made by histology...

Lymphangioma is a congenital malformed lymphatic tumor that rarely involves the tongue. In our clinic, a 10-year-old female presented with lymphangioma circumscriptum involving the right two-thirds of the tongue. We administered an intralesional combination injection of triamcinolone, bleomycin, and bevacizumab as a treatment. Almost complete remission after combination therapy was achieved without complications such as edema, swallowing difficulties or recurrence. Bevacizumab, an inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor, was effective for the treatment of lymphangioma of the tongue in this case...

Perivascular epithelioid cell tumor (PEComa) is a rare neoplasm considered to arise from myomelanocytic cell lineage. The uterus is reportedly the most common site to be involved. Orbital PEComa is extremely rare with only two cases reported till date. A 5-year-old male presented with a right medial orbital mass for the last 6 months. The patient was diagnosed with alveolar soft part sarcoma elsewhere. Magnetic resonance imaging features were suggestive of lymphangioma with bleeding. The excision biopsy revealed multiple tumor cells comprising epithelioid cells with clear cytoplasm, along with nuclear atypia and mitosis...

Mesenteric cystic lymphangioma (MCL) is an uncommon, benign, slow-growing abdominal tumor that is derived from the lymphatic vessels (World J Gastroenterol. 2012;18:6328-6332, Radiographics. 1994;14:729-737). It is most often diagnosed in the head and neck of affected children. Rarely, a lymphangioma can develop within the small bowel (Pan Afr Med J. 2012;12:7). The clinical presentation of patients with an abdominal MCL can range from asymptomatic to acute abdominal pain (J Korean Surg Soc. 2012;83:102-106)...

I read with great interest the article reported by Efe et al in Journal of Cranofacial Surgery (2016;27:1802-1803), presenting the excellent result obtained by the use of sclerotherapy with single-dose OK-432 in a growing cervical lymphangioma. Cervicothoracic lymphangioma is a rare congenital anomaly that is mostly asymptomatic. We would like to share our experience of a rare cause of dyspnea by lymphangioma. In our case, the patient presented with dyspnea and paroxysmal cough caused by cervicothoracic lymphangioma and sclerotherapy alleviated tracheal compression and relieved the dyspneic symptoms...

A 64-year-old white woman was originally diagnosed with histiocytic lymphoma in 1977. She had bilateral lymph node biopsies of the groin, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy after her diagnosis had been confirmed pathologically. She was treated with prednisone and vincristine.

Despite the small bowel comprising 90% of the mucosal surface area of the gastrointestinal tract, it is a rare site for neoplasia and only accounts for a little over 3% of the tumors that arise in the digestive tract. Benign small bowel lesions include lipomas, lymphangiomas, leiomyomas, neurofibromas, nodular lymphoid hyperplasia and adenomas, many of which are precursors to malignant lesions. Several polyposis syndromes are associated with small bowel polyps as well, including familial adenomatous polyposis syndrome, lynch syndrome, Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, Cowden syndrome and juvenile polyposis syndrome...

Cardiac lymphangioma is a rare primary benign tumor of the heart. We report a 3-year-old with cystic lymphangioma encasing the right coronary artery. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging confirmed a intra-pericardial heterogeneous mass measuring 2.6 × 2.4 × 3.9 cm and situated right anterolateral to the ascending aorta and extending into the right atrioventricular groove. Furthermore, the right coronary artery traversed through the center of the mass. Surgical resection, on cardiopulmonary bypass, consisted of excision by skeletonizing the right coronary artery along the length of the mass...

Isolated neurofibromas in the absence of systemic neurofibromatosis are known as solitary or localized neurofibromas. When present in the orbit, these lesions may appear clinically and radiographically similar to other tumors, complicating diagnosis and management. Key radiographic signs may guide clinicians to the correct diagnosis when the presentation and patient demographic data obfuscate the disease entity. We present a case of a large multi-lobulated neurofibroma misdiagnosed as a lymphangioma. A brief review of these tumors emphasizing key radiographic features is also included...

Lymphangioma is a rare, benign mesenchymal neoplasm, which is characterized by numerous intercommunicating cystic spaces containing lymphatic fluid. It is considered a congenital disease resulting from the obstruction of regional lymph drainage during the developmental period. Lymphangioma frequently occurs in the cervical neck and axilla, also in the retroperitoneum, mediastinum, mesentery, omentum, colon, and pelvis, rarely in the perirenal space. These tumors usually present in childhood, but infrequently, these also present in adults...

Fibroepithelial polyp (FEP) and lymphangioma circumscriptum (LC) of the vulva are rare diseases that occur generally in young to middle-aged women. The pathogenesis of FEP is not clearly understood. Several previous cases have suggested that a hormonal influence may be a predisposing condition for developing FEP with or without chronic inflammation. A 68-year-old postmenopausal woman presented with a history of multiple raised lesions on the vulva with a 1-year duration. Additionally, a pedunculated mass had appeared 6 months earlier in the left lower labia minora...

Cystic lymphangioma of small bowel mesentery is rare with clinical features ranging from an asymptomatic abdominal lump to acute intestinal obstruction. We discuss two cases of lymphangioma of small bowel mesentery who presented to us as acute intestinal obstruction. In the first case exploratory laparotomy revealed a large multicystic lesion arising from small bowel mesentery just distal to the duodenojejunal junction having multiple small cysts filled with milky white fluid. The involved region of the bowel was excised...

Verrucous hemangioma is an uncommon congenital vascular malformation, which may clinically masquerade angiokeratoma, lymphangioma circumscriptum, or malignant melanoma. Differentiation is essential owing to varied therapeutic and prognostic implications. We present a rare case of multiple verrucous hemangiomas in a teenage girl who presented with multiple warty lesions over the dorsal aspect of the left foot since birth. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan was suggestive of a vascular malformation, and skin biopsy showed ectatic blood vessels extending from the papillary dermis into the subcutaneous tissue, diagnostic of verrucous hemangioma...

Lymphedema, a rare debilitating disorder usually involving limbs. For lymphedema involving the genitalia, its terminology remains imprecise and not consensual. So, lymphangiectasia simply means dilatation of lymphatic vessels. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: The dermoscopy of lymphangioma circumscriptum, also known as superficial lymphatic malformation, remains to be clarified. METHODS: Digital dermoscopic images of 45 histopathologically confirmed cases of lymphangioma circumscriptum collected from nine hospitals in Spain, Italy and Turkey were evaluated for the presence of dermoscopic structures and patterns. RESULTS: Our study shows that the most common structure found in lymphangioma circumscriptum was the presence of lacunae (89% of cases)...

BACKGROUND: Neonatal tumors are different from tumors of the older children and knowledge gained from treating older children can not be extrapolated to neonates. Neonates have immature physiology and their haematopoietic and immune systems are not fully developed and the response to therapy is unpredictable. Hence it is imperative to study these tumors as separate entity. The aim of this study is to analyse this rare set of tumors in terms of their incidence, clinical features and management...
