Vascular lesions of the solid abdominal viscera may pose diagnostic and management issues. A 16-year old girl admitted to emergency department due to recurrent abdominal pain and diagnosed to have multiple vascular malformations of the spleen on imaging investigations. Littoral cell angioma was preoperative suspicion owing to no response of the vascular lesion to the propranolol. It turned out to be cavernous hemangioma on histopathology.

BACKGROUND: Among the rare intraventricular cavernomas (IVCs), purely intraaqueductal cavernomas are exceptional. CASE DESCRIPTION: We report a unique case of a 62-year-old patient who presented to our clinics complaining of progressive headache, memory loss, gait instability, and urinary incontinence. MR imaging showed the presence of a mass lesion located in the lumen of the cerebral aqueduct, associated with triventricular hydrocephalus. CONCLUSIONS: We discuss the rationale that led us to treat hydrocephalus with neuroendoscopy, which offered the possibility to directly inspect the intraaqueductal lesion, make the diagnosis of cavernoma, and treat symptoms due to hydrocephalus without increasing the risk of bleeding...

BACKGROUND: Surgeries for lesions in the dominant hippocampal and parahippocampal gyrus involving the posteromedial temporal regions are challenging to perform because they are located close to Wernicke's area; white matter fibers related with language; the optic radiations; and critical neurovascular structures. We performed a transtemporal approach with awake functional mapping for lesions affecting the dominant posteromedial temporal regions. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of awake craniotomy for these lesions...

Ophthalmologic involvement in Sturge-Weber-Krabbe syndrome (SWKS) is present in 30-70% of cases and needs to be reviewed because of its impact on visual development. We report a case of a newborn for whom SSWK with ophthalmologic involvement was suspected. She had a right segmental plane angioma associated with right congenital glaucoma and suspected right pial angioma. Ophthalmic involvement in SWKS may be nonocular: iatrogenic by treatment-associated complications and central by leptomeningeal damage. Ophthalmologic involvement can occur throughout childhood and is mainly represented by glaucoma and diffuse choroidal hemangioma and then conjunctival hemangioma, retinal detachment, and iris heterochromia...

Gorham disease (also referred to as vanishing bone disease or idiopathic massive osteolysis) is a rare skeletal condition that results in the localized replacement of bone with angiomas and fibrosis. The etiology and most effective treatment for this nonhereditary condition remain controversial in the medical literature. To our knowledge, we present the first case of post-traumatic Gorham disease that includes MR imaging (before and after radiation therapy), post-radiation CT with evidence of treatment effect (sclerosis), as well as asymptomatic bilateral renal lymphangiomata...

INTRODUCTION: Intraventricular cavernous angiomas are rare pathological entities, and those located at the foramen of Monro are even rarer. We herein present a case of cavernous angioma at the foramen of Monro that was successfully treated by neuroendoscope-assisted surgical removal, and review the relevant literature. CASE PRESENTATION: A 65-year-old woman had experienced headache and vomiting for 10 days before admission to another hospital. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a mass at the foramen of Monro, and obstructive hydrocephalus of both lateral ventricles...

By conducting a systemic search of the PubMed database, we performed a comprehensive literature review to characterize secondary gliomas following radiotherapy treatment and to determine the most appropriate treatment strategy. Our analysis included 296 cases of radiation-induced gliomas. The primary lesion was characterized as a hematological malignancy in 104 cases (35.1 %), pituitary adenoma in 35 (11.8 %), craniopharyngioma in 19 (6.4 %), medulloblastoma in 38 (12.8 %), germ cell tumor in 13 (4.3 %), low-grade glioma in 28 (9...

Eruptive pseudoangiomatosis is a distinct exanthem thought to be caused by viruses. The usual rash configu-ration is erythematous papules and macules. An association with echovirus infection has been reported. We present here one adult and one child with this exanthem, supported by clinical, histopathological, and immunohistochemical findings. Both patients presented with prodromal symptoms, widespread angioma-like macules in annular configuration, blanchable telangiectasia, followed by spontaneous remission in 6-8 weeks...

BACKGROUND: The resection of left-sided perisylvian brain lesions harbours the risk of postoperative language impairment. Therefore the individual patient's language distribution is investigated by intraoperative direct cortical stimulation (DCS) during awake surgery. Yet, not all patients qualify for awake surgery. Non-invasive language mapping by repetitive navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has frequently shown a high correlation in comparison with the results of DCS language mapping in terms of language-negative brain regions...

Cavernous angiomas represent 5-12% of all spinal vascular lesions and 1% of all intramedullary lesions in pediatric patients. Intramedullary spinal cavernomas are relatively rare with only 24 cases reported till date to the best of our knowledge. A 15 -year-old boy presented to the clinic with acute onset motor weakness in all four limbs. He was diagnosed with multiple cerebral cavernomas and an acutely bleeding spinal cavernoma. Complete surgical excision of the spinal cavernoma was done. Postoperatively the patient's weakness gradually improved to a power of 4/5 in all his limbs over a period of 10 days...

Vascular anomalies, which are broadly identified as "angiomas", are rare entities and often unknown by the medical sphere. They are divided in two different categories which carry different prognosis and management: "vascular tumors" and "vascular malformations". Their precise identification is crucial and involves a good knowledge of the biological classification published by Mulliken and Glowacki and that has recently been updated by the International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies (ISSVA). Vascular tumors are benign, common, inborn or not and most of the time disappear with growth...

BACKGROUND: Sturge-Weber syndrome is characterized by a facial port-wine stain associated with either or both a retinal angioma and a cerebral pial angioma. Because a pial angioma may not be evident on the initial imaging studies, individuals at risk for epilepsy are often not identified before their first seizure. The aim of this study is to identify predictive factors predisposing Sturge-Weber patients to epilepsy. METHODS: The medical archives and photography database of our institution were reviewed to identify Sturge-Weber Syndrome patients followed up between 1990 and 2015...

PURPOSE: Venous angioma (VA) is the most common congenital abnormality of the intracranial vasculature. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between VA and epilepsy and to identify the characteristics of children with VA and epilepsy. METHODS: The records of all patients aged less than 18 years who underwent brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at Pusan National University Hospital were retrospectively reviewed. Patients with isolated VA and patients with normal MRI were compared in terms of the prevalence of epilepsy...

Kasposiform hemoangioendothelioma (KHE) and tufted angioma (TA) are classifed as vascular tumors with locally aggressive and benign growth potential, respectively, within the classification schema proposed by the International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies. A unique feature of these vascular tumors is the risk of Kasabach-Merritt phenomenon (KMP), a severe thrombocytopenia with mild to moderate coagulopathy resulting from intralesional platelet trapping. As with many vascular anomalies, accurate description of clinical course, responses to therapy, and long-term outcomes have been hindered by lesion misidentification, imprecise nomenclature, and lack of prospective, randomized clinical trials to assess therapeutic efficacy...

During complete inspection of skin a variety of penile skin alterations may be found. Not all dermatological findings have clinical relevance. Pearly papules and heterotopic sebaceous glands are physiological variations. Most penile melanotic macules, angiokeratoma, fibroma and angioma have not to be treated. However, other more severe diseases such as malignant skin lesions (erythroplasia of Queyrat), infectious disease (human papillomavirus-induced penile warts) or systemic skin diseases (psoriasis) may be detected...

BACKGROUND: Suprasellar cavernous malformation in the optic pathway is not commonly encountered. To date, there are only few reports present in the literature. CASE DESCRIPTION: The authors report a rare case of suprasellar optic pathway cavernous malformation in a 33-year-old female who presented with progressive visual loss. Her imaging revealed a large heterogeneous, hyperintense, hemorrhagic right suprasellar extra-axial complex cystic structure, causing mass effect on the adjacent hypothalamus and third ventricle displacing these structures...
