Notable milestones in the treatment of vascular lesions have been achieved over the past century. Many cutaneous vascular lesions can be successfully treated with lightbased devices. In this review, we will discuss the treatment of port-wine birthmarks, lymphatic malformations, infantile hemangiomas, rosacea, venous lakes, pyogenic granulomas, cherry angiomas, and angiofibromas using lasers, total reflection amplification of spontaneous emission of radiation, intense pulsed light, and photodynamic therapy. In addition, for several of these diagnoses, we will review medical therapies that can be combined with light-based devices to provide enhanced results...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate delayed complications in brain arteriovenous malformation (BAVM) patients after gamma knife stereotactic radiosurgery (GKRS) and to present the salvage therapy experiences of BAVM patients with radiation-induced changes (RICs) or intracranial hemorrhage (ICH). METHODS: This cohort consisted of 44 BAVM patients who underwent failed GKRS between 2000 and 2015. These patients were further divided into an RIC group (23 patients) and an ICH group (21 patients) based on their post-GKRS complications...

Cavernous hemangioma in the sellar region is quite rare with only a handful of cases being reported in the English literature. Its clinical manifestations and imaging characteristics can mimic those of a pituitary adenoma. We report two cases of recurrent sellar lesions, both of which were clinically suspected of being pituitary adenomas but histologically confirmed as cavernous hemangiomas. The first case is of a 67-year-old female whose initial resection was diagnosed as "venous angioma". Neuroimaging performed 27 years later demonstrated significant growth of the lesion involving the right cavernous sinus and encasing the right internal carotid artery...

Pilocytic astrocytoma (PA), featuring activation of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway, is the most common tumor of the pediatric central nervous system. However, it remains unknown whether MAPK activation is present in the reactive gliosis of non-neoplastic lesions. Therefore, we investigated the expression of MAPK in reactive gliosis associated with cavernous angiomas. Immunohistochemical expression and the extent of BRAF, ERK, p38, and JNK were investigated in 10 patients with gliosis surrounding cavernous angiomas (GS group) and 10 patients with PA (PA group)...

Cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are rare vascular lesions potentially responsible for substantial neurological morbidity and mortality. Over the past four decades, radiosurgery has become a valid therapeutic option for many patients with small intracranial AVMs, but reports describing the use of robotic stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) are rare. The purposes of this study are to describe the efficacy and toxicity of robotic SRS for AVMs and to review the literature. The reports of 48 consecutive patients treated with SRS were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Hypertrophic olivary degeneration (HOD) is a rare phenomenon in the dento-rubro-olivary pathway due to lesion or disruption of the fibers of the Guillain-Mollaret Triangle. Hemorrhage of pontine and midbrain cavernous angiomas rarely can lead to hypertrophic olivary degeneration (HOD) portending neurological deterioration and possible concomitant life-threatening complications; for this reason, it may define a poignant consideration in planning intervention. CASE DESCRIPTION: 57-year-old female with known midbrain-pontine cavernous angioma...

Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome (KTWS) is a rare congenital vascular disorder characterized by the classic triad of cutaneous nevi, venous varicosities, and osseous and soft tissue hypertrophy of the affected limb. Various vascular anomalies of the central nervous system have also been described in patients with this syndrome. The English-language literature to date contains six reports of associations between KTWS and spinal cord cavernous angioma (CA), but the management of these patients has not been well described...

Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHE) is an infrequent vascular tumor that has an intermediate prognosis between the prognosis of the angioma and that of the angiosarcoma. Its evolution is characterized by a tendency to recurrence and metastases. EHE has been reported in locations such as: lungs, liver, bone and soft tissues. There are very few reports of cases involving the head and neck region. The occurrence of EHE in the orbital region and/or the eyelid is extremely rare. The authors report a case of EHE in the right upper eyelid...

Angioma or hemangioma is a benign vascular tumor which rarely occurs in muscles. It mostly affects young adults. We report a case of intramuscular hemangioma of quadriceps with painless extension contracture of the knee and a mass in the thigh. MRI allowed preoperative diagnosis of intramuscular hemangiomas and, primarily, T2-weighted images allow specific topographic assessment and give an indication to the diagnosis.

INTRODUCTION: Littoral- cell angioma (LCA) is a rare benign vascular tumour of the spleen. There have been less then 80 cases reported in the literature. Recent reports have described it to be a malignant lesion with congenital and immunologic associations. We report a case of LCA of the spleen. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 52 -year-old male patient was admitted to hospital with a three month duration of intermittent upper abdominal pain and nausea. Imaging studies, including computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), showed multiple lesions in the spleen as well as in the accessory spleens...

Pilocytic astrocytoma (PA) commonly occurs during the first two decades of life. Typical locations include cerebellum, optic nerve, optic chiasm/hypothalamus and brainstem. PA should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with brain tumors manifesting with hemorrhagic onset. We report a case of a hemorrhagic onset of cerebellar PA in a young adult with imaging findings mimicking cavernous angioma. We also discuss imaging features and histological characteristics with a focus on the etiology of the hemorrhagic onset...

The authors' initial experience with the endoscopic extradural supraorbital approach to the temporal pole and adjacent area is reported. Fully endoscopic surgery using the extradural space via a supraorbital keyhole was performed for tumors in or around the temporal pole, including temporal pole cavernous angioma, sphenoid ridge meningioma, and cavernous sinus pituitary adenoma, mainly using 4-mm, 0° and 30° endoscopes and single-shaft instruments. After making a supraorbital keyhole, a 4-mm, 30° endoscope was advanced into the extradural space of the anterior cranial fossa during lifting of the dura mater...

Gorham-Stout disease (GSD) is a rare angiomatous disorder characterized by osteolysis. We report the case of a 66-year-old woman who developed sudden left eye proptosis and facial pain. Neuroimaging demonstrated a destructive mass involving the roof and lateral wall of the left orbit with adjacent abnormal orbital soft tissue. An initial biopsy of the soft tissue was nondiagnostic; however, transcranial biopsy of the orbital roof revealed an intraosseous cavernous angioma, with infiltration of orbital fat by angiomatous tissue...
