BACKGROUND: Umbilical cord hemangioma is very rare and may not be detected prenatally. However, it should be considered in differential diagnosis with other umbilical masses because it can cause significant morbidity. METHODS: We report the case of a newborn referred with suspected omphalitis and umbilical hernia. RESULTS: Physical examination showed an irreducible umbilical tumor, the size of olive, with dubious secretion. The initial suspected diagnosis was urachal or omphalomesenteric duct remnants...

Navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS) is a frequently used, non-invasive method to map the motor cortex. It is of great value in the preoperative workup of patients that suffer from motor eloquent brain lesions. Here, we present a single-center experience using preoperative nTMS in cortical motor eloquent lesions with emphasis on metastasis. All patients that underwent preoperative nTMS between June 2013 and January 2016 were evaluated. A total of 61 patients underwent nTMS before undergoing surgery for a motor eloquent brain lesion...

Sturge-Weber syndrome has been included in the group of phakomatoses that is characterized by hamartomas involving the brain, skin, and eyes. The characteristic facial port-wine stain, involving the first branch of the trigeminal nerve and the embryonic vasculature distribution in this area, leads to several ocular complications of the anterior segment and can involve the eyelids and conjunctiva. The posterior segment of the eyes is also affected with diffuse choroidal hemangiomas. However, the most frequent ocular comorbidity is glaucoma with a prevalence rate ranging from 30%-70%...

BACKGROUND: Facial nerve palsy (FNP) occurs less frequently in children as compared to adults but most cases are secondary to an identifiable cause. These children may have a variety of ocular and systemic features associated with the palsy and need detailed ophthalmic and systemic evaluation. METHODS: This was a retrospective chart review of all the cases of FNP below the age of 16 years, presenting to a tertiary ophthalmic hospital over the period of 9 years, from January 2000 to December 2008...

INTRODUCTION: PHACE syndrome is a neurocutaneous disorder involving large facial hemangiomas in association with posterior fossa abnormalities, cerebral arterial anomalies, cardiac defects, and eye abnormalities. A recent consensus statement has delineated criteria necessary for the diagnosis of PHACE syndrome. Extracutaneous manifestations of PHACE syndrome predominately affect the cerebrovascular system. To date, there are no reports of cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs) in children with PHACE syndrome...

The cases of Wyburn-Mason syndrome reported in recent years have been professional and significant. However, most of the reports focus on retinal lesions and few demonstrate the disorder of the brain; thus, to the best of the authors' knowledge, there is no effective method to cure the retinal lesions at this time. Racemose hemangioma in the ocular fundus is easy for an ophthalmologist to detect, and once this is identified, the ophthalmologist should closely monitor the patient's brain. In this report, the authors present a typical case of Wyburn-Mason syndrome to underline the importance of neuroradiological examinations for this disease...

INTRODUCTION: Cavernous hemangioma of the skull is a rare pathological diagnosis, accounting for 0.2% of bone tumors and 7% of skull tumors. Usually calvarial bone cavernous hemangioma are associated with a benign clinical course and, despite their enlargement and subsequent erosion of the surrounding bone, the inner table of the skull remains intact and the lesion is completely extracranial. PRESENTATION OF A CASE: The authors present the unique case of a huge left frontal bone cavernous malformation with intradural extension and brain compression determining a right hemiparesis...

PHACE syndrome is a rare neurocutaneous disorder characterized by posterior fossa malformations, hemangiomas, arterial anomalies, cardiac defects, and abnormalities of the eye. Thyroid disorders associated with PHACE syndrome have been described, although there are limited reports of this rare occurrence. We report a case of PHACE syndrome with congenital hypothyroidism in an infant, for which absent thyroid gland was diagnosed at magnetic resonance imaging.

INTRODUCTION: Intramuscular venous malformations have been previously described as intramuscular hemangiomas, and various therapies have been applied for their treatment. This condition is relatively rare, and therefore, physicians often struggle to determine the appropriate therapy. We presented a case of an enlarged intramuscular venous malformation relapsed after surgery successfully treated with complete resection. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We presented a case of an enlarged intramuscular venous malformation with postoperative recurrence successfully treated with complete resection...

Cavernous hemangioma is not a neoplasm, but rather a congenital venous malformation with the potential to develop in all parts of the body, though it is very rarely seen in the thymus. We report a case of cavernous hemangioma in the thymus partially resected. A 71-year-old woman presented with pericardial discomfort, and chest computed tomography (CT) showed a left lateral mediastinal mass which was 2.0 × 1.2 × 1.8 cm in size, with border regularity and without calcification. Its interior was partially enhanced...

Cavernous angiomas originating in the internal auditory canal are very rare. In the available literature, only 65 cases of cavernomas in this location have been previously reported. We describe the case of a 22-year-old woman surgically treated for a cavernous hemangioma in the left internal auditory canal, mimicking on preoperative magnetic resonance imaging MRI an acoustic neuroma. Neurological symptoms were hypoacusia and dizziness. The cavernous angioma encased the seventh and, partially, the eighth cranial nerve complex...

Hemangiomas are benign tumors that occur after a few days of life. The capillary malformations are isolated or constitute part of a complex angiomatosis. Venous malformations are low flow malformations with a blue color. They are of different types. The arteriovenous malformations are high flow lesions. They are difficult to treat. Lymphatic malformations are micro- or macrocystic. MRI is the gold standard for explorations. Some patients undergo maxillofacial surgical procedures and interventional radiology techniques for venous malformations, macrocystic lymphatic malformations, arteriovenous malformations...

A uterine arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is an uncommon cause of uterine bleeding. Location of this lesion in the uterine cervix is exceptional. We report a case of a 34-year-old woman who presented with chronic menorrhagias and hypochromic anemia. A sonographic study revealed a 10-cm, fundal, intramural, uterine well-circumscribed mass that distorted the endometrial cavity. The patient underwent hysterectomy for a large uterine leiomyoma. The pathological study revealed an incidental AVM of the posterior half of the cervix measuring 5...

Lymphangiomas are benign hamartomatous tumors of the lymphatic channels which present as developmental malformations arising from sequestration of lymphatic tissue that do not communicate with the rest of the lymphatic channels. Lymphatic vessels are filled with a clear protein-rich fluid containing few lymph cells. It can also occur in association with hemangioma. The onset of lymphangiomas are either at birth (60% to 70%) or up to two years of age (90%) and rare in adults. Lymphangiomas have marked predilection for the head and neck region (50-70%)...

Suprasellar and third ventricular region cavernous malformations originating from the floor of the third ventricle are extremely rare. We report a case of third ventricular cavernous malformation arising from the ventricle floor in a 24-year-old woman who presented with short-term memory loss and disorientation. Computed tomography revealed a suprasellar mass with calcification in the posterior chiasmatic region. T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging revealed a mass with heterogeneous intensity and without hydrocephalus...

Congenital anomalies may be associated with Wilms tumor either as isolated anomalies or as part of a congenital malformation syndrome. Nephroblastoma occurring in association with polycystic kidneys is very rare. The optimal surgical management of nephroblastoma in the setting of polycystic kidneys is not defined because of the rarity of this presentation. PHACE syndrome includes posterior fossa anomalies, hemangioma, arterial lesions, cardiac abnormalities/coarctation of aorta, and eye abnormalities. We report a 17-month-old baby with bilateral polycystic kidneys and PHACE syndrome who developed nephroblastoma in the right polycystic kidney which was treated successfully with nephron-sparing partial nephrectomy and chemotherapy...
