Infantile haemangiomas (IHs) are the most common congenital vascular tumours of infancy. Propranolol has been demonstrated to be effective for IHs; however, the factors affecting its therapeutic effect remain unknown. We enrolled 169 infants with IHs of the head and neck region treated with oral propranolol at a dose of 2.0 mg/kg/day. We evaluated the therapeutic responses 6 months after treatment and the end of treatment, which were categorized into four grades. The type and location of the lesions and the infant age at treatment initiation were analysed...

AIM: To evaluate the diagnostic performance of susceptibility-weighted-magnetic-resonance imaging (SW-MRI) for the detection of vertebral haemangiomas (VHs) compared to T1/T2-weighted MRI sequences, radiographs, and computed tomography (CT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was approved by the local ethics review board. An SW-MRI sequence was added to the clinical spine imaging protocol. The image-based diagnosis of 56 VHs in 46 patients was established using T1/T2 MRI in combination with radiography/CT as the reference standard...

Haemangioma of infancy, a benign tumour of blood vessels, is the most common tumour of infancy. Ulceration, the most common complication, presents a unique wound care challenge. A retrospective audit of medical records of children with haemangioma of infancy who presented to the Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne, Australia, between January 2000 and December 2014 was undertaken with an aim to examine wound management of ulcerated haemangioma of infancy. In total, 535 hospital medical records were identified as suitable, of which 352 were randomly selected and audited, of which 84 patients had ulcerated haemangioma of infancy, and 62 were subject to wound management...

Although most infantile haemangiomas do not require treatment due to a natural history of spontaneous involution, some require early intervention. The Australasian Vascular Anomalies Network and the Australasian Paediatric Dermatology Network have developed a consensus statement for the treatment of infantile haemangiomas with oral propranolol. Infants with haemangiomas that are life threatening, at risk of ulceration, or at risk of causing a significant functional impairment, psychological impact or physical deformity should be treated early with oral propranolol...

There have been several additions and deletions in Chapter 4 on Tumours of the oral cavity and mobile tongue in the 2017 fourth edition of the World Health Organization Classification of Tumours of the Head and Neck. This chapter excludes the oropharynx, which now is a stand-alone chapter acknowledging the uniqueness of the oropharynx from the oral cavity. New entries in Chapter 4 include rhabdomyoma, haemangioma, schwannoma, neurofibroma and myofibroblastic sarcoma in the section titled Soft tissue and neural tumours...

Programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) and its ligands have been shown to play a significant role in evasion of malignant tumour cells from the immune system. Last year, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved anti-PD-1 inhibitors for treatment of non-small cell lung carcinoma and recently has approved anti-PD-L1 blocker for treatment of metastatic urothelial cell carcinoma. However, the role that the immune system might have on benign tumours including vascular anomalies has received less attention...

As one of intraocular tumours, retinal cavernous haemangioma is a benign vascular lesion that is mostly unilateral. Very few cases about cavernous haemangioma treatment are reported, and there is currently no consensus on the most effective treatment. This clinical case reports on a 40-year-old male, presenting a peripheral retinal cavernous haemangioma, complicated with a repetitive vitreous haemorrhage causing bad vision. Several therapeutic methods were unsuccessfully attempted to stop haemorrhagic recurrences...

CLINICAL CASE: A 29-year-old female with bilateral retinal capillary haemangiomas (RCH). A genetic analysis was carried out due to the suspicion of von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease, with negative results on 2occasions. There was progression of the RCH in the left eye, leading to a macular epiretinal membrane. The patient was treated with laser, intravitreal ranibizumab, and vitrectomy. Finally, a third genetic test detected a de novo mutation in the VHL gene, and led to the genetic diagnosis...

INTRODUCTION: Tuberculosis tenosynovitis of the wrist and hand is an unusual condition. It mimics a number of other clinical conditions such as ganglion, De quervan's disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, granulomatous gout, neurofibroma, and haemangioma. CASE REPORT: We present case of 58-year-old male patient with swelling over thenar region of left hand where the initial fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) report suggested diagnosis of ganglion/synovial cyst, but the patient did not improve with conservative treatment...

PURPOSE: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the spine is a sensitive investigation, which not only provides detailed images of the spinal column but also adjacent spinal regions and para-vertebral organ systems. Such incidental findings (IF) can be asymptomatic but significant. The efficacy of whole spine T2 sagittal screening in providing additional information has been demonstrated in several spinal diseases but its routine use in patients with spinal degenerative diseases has not been studied...

With a prevalence of 4·5%, infantile haemangiomas are the most common benign tumours of infancy, arising in the first few weeks of life and exhibiting a characteristic sequence of growth and spontaneous involution. Most infantile haemangiomas do not require therapy. However, to identify at-risk haemangiomas, close follow-up is crucial in the first weeks of life; 80% of all haemangiomas reach their final size by 3 months of age. The main indications for treatment are life-threatening infantile haemangioma (causing heart failure or respiratory distress), tumours posing functional risks (eg, visual obstruction, amblyopia, or feeding difficulties), ulceration, and severe anatomic distortion, especially on the face...

Cardiac haemangiomas are exceedingly rare; however, they can cause significant haemodynamic impairment and disturbances in heart rhythm. Rarely, cardiac tumours may also coexist with congenital heart lesions. We present an extremely unusual case of a cardiac haemangioma in the setting of complex transposition of the great arteries that caused functional tricuspid atresia. To our knowledge, this is the first such case described in the literature.

The cervical epidural anaesthesia is a safe anaesthetic technique with minimal morbidity and early postoperative recovery. Cervical epidural anaesthesia can be effectively used for neck, upper arm and chest surgeries. The technique avoids the adverse effects of general anaesthetics and airway instrumentation, especially in patients with cardio respiratory disorders. We preferred CEA for giant haemangioma neck excision in an adult female patient, having an associated laryngeal haemangioma, 10ml of 0.5% ropivacaine with 50μg Fentanyl (total 11 ml) was administered into the cervical epidural space through a 20G epidural catheter introduced via a 18G Tuohy needle at the level of C7-T1 space...

Solitary fibrous tumours are of mesenchymal origin and comprise of uncommon spindle cell neoplasias. Most commonly the lesions arise from pleura but other rarer sites include lungs, peritoneum, pericardium, nasal cavities, thyroid, parotid gland and orbit. We report the case of a 41-year-old male patient who presented to us with a painless, progressive growth of a mass in the superior part of left orbit with proptosis and inferotemporal displacement of the left eye. Computed Tomography (CT) scan revealed homogeneous enhancing lesion in the superior compartment of left orbit in the extraconal region, extending intraconally and distorting the globe...

OBJECTIVE: To study the effectiveness and limitations of photodynamic therapy (PDT) as treatment of choice in patients with symptomatic circumscribed choroidal haemangioma. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted on 16 patients (13 men and 3 women, with mean age of 54.88 years) with circumscribed choroidal haemangioma, who attended our centre and were treated with PDT in the last 7 years. RESULTS: All patients had circumscribed choroidal haemangioma, which caused a decrease in visual acuity (VA) secondary to the presence of intraretinal microcystic oedema or neurosensory detachment...
