Yui Igari, Shirushi Takahashi, Akihito Usui, Yusuke Kawasumi, Masato Funayama
A 4-year-old girl who had been treated for asthma since the age of 2 years had a severe coughing fit and died suddenly. The patient had a history of occasional severe coughing fits, and these fits had been worsening in severity during the week before her death. Prior to death, she was taken to a clinician, and thymic hypertrophy was suspected based on chest X-ray findings. The clinician recommended that she visit a general hospital at a later date; however, she died that night. Postmortem radiology and autopsy revealed a large mass in the anterior mediastinum compressing the heart and airway, and no other findings attributable to sudden death were observed...

Chest wall hemangiomas are rare tumors that may originate within the soft tissue or from the ribs. Intramuscular hemangioma is infrequent, representing less than 1 % of all hemangiomas, and the localization in the chest wall is even less frequent. They are typically cutaneous in location, large, and poorly circumscribed and can be locally destructive. We present a case of a 34-year-old lady presented with firm lump 3 × 3 cm in left upper and inner quadrant of left breast well defined borders, non-pulsatile and restricted mobility...

BACKGROUND: Cavernous hemangiomas are among the least common benign chest wall masses. The aim of this study is to present a case of a 40-year-old women, with a giant cavernous haemangioma arising in the left axillary area. CASE REPORT: A 40-year-old female, was referred to a pulmonologist, after her chest radiograph showed, in the upper field of the left lung, a peripherally located shading (13 cm long and 3.5 cm deep) connecting with the pleura. The skin above the change was not discoloured...

We experienced a rare case of a 73-year-old woman with giant hemangioma of the left 8th rib. She had an abnormal shadow of left lower lung field in a health check and was referred to our hospital. Preoperative examination suggested malignant rib tumor because of tumor growth beyond the disrupted bony cortex. She underwent resection of the left 8th rib with the 7th rib and the 7th intercostal muscles and reconstruction of the chest wall defect. The pathological diagnosis of the lesion was cavernous hemangioma...

A 51-year-old female was referred to our clinic for investigation of abnormal chest X-ray findings during a routine health examination. Chest computed tomography showed a middle mediastinal tumor, and she was admitted to hospital for surgical treatment. The tumor was removed using thoracoscopic surgery, without significant blood loss. Pathological examination showed that the tumor was composed of blood vessels with relatively thick vascular walls containing smooth muscle. Immunohistochemical staining was positive for CD34 and Factor VIII, and negative for D2-40...

Hemangiomas are benign vascular tumors that usually involve the liver, skin, eyes and central nervous system. Hemangioma of the bone is unusual and is generally observed in the vertebrae or skull while hemangioma of the costae is extremely rare. Hemangioma of the rib and chest wall tuberculosis may be misdiagnosed as chest wall tumors. We herein report a case of hemangioma of the rib with a tuberculosis infection of the pleura.

Primary chest wall tumors occur infrequently; in particular, cavernous hemangioma of the chest wall is an extremely rare disease. We report a case of child with cavernous hemangioma of the chest wall, which was successfully resected. Obvious enlargement of the tumor and the appearance of pain were observed during a 2-year follow-up. In the present case, transcutaneous ultrasonography showed the appearance and disappearance of the mass. This was considered to be caused by the transfer of contents between the shallow and deep parts of the tumor...

An asymptomatic 48-year-old woman presented to our hospital with a tumor of the rib incidentally diagnosed on a chest roentgenogram. The patient was investigated and underwent tumor resection of the chest wall. The pathologic study revealed that it was cavernous hemangioma. This tumor of the bone is a distinctly uncommon benign vascular tumor, generally occurring in the spine or skull. Hemangiomas involving the rib are even more rare, with only 22 cases described in the literature. However, we suggest that this tumor of the rib should be considered in the differential diagnosis, principally in asymptomatic patients...

We report a case of an 11-year-old girl who presented with a slowly enlarging mass in the right posterolateral chest wall. Computed tomography showed a soft-tissue mass 8.5 × 7.5 × 5.5 cm in size, arising from the right posterolateral 9th, 10th, and 11th intercostal spaces. Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed a vascular mass. The patient underwent complete resection of the tumor, together with the right 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th ribs and their intercostal muscles. Reconstruction of the chest wall was performed with methyl methacrylate and Marlex mesh...

We describe the management of a patient who presented with symptoms of severe congestive heart failure. A 48-year-old man was initially seen in the emergency room, admitted to the hospital, and worked up with a transthoracic echocardiogram, a transesophageal echocardiogram, and a computer tomography scan of the chest. All cardiac valves were normal, as was the left ventricular ejection fraction. A mobile left atrial tumor measuring 6 x 4 x 5 cm was found attached to the left atrial dome, left atrial cuff, and left pulmonary veins...

Chest wall osseous hemangioma is a rare disease entity accounting for only 0.7% of all hemangiomas. Hemangioma of the sternum is extremely rare, and only three cases have been reported in the literature. We present an additional case of a sternal hemangioma with confirmation by surgical resection. There was no local recurrence during three years' follow-up. We review the pertinent literature and discuss the management of the entity.

The patient was a 51-year-old man who visited the hospital with swelling of the anterior chest. Chest computed tomography detected a tumor developing from the anterior mediastinum to the anterior chest wall. There was weak contrast enhancement inside the tumor, and calcification was observed in the central region. A soft tumor with an obscure border and that adhered to the back of the left sternum was surgically removed with thymic fat including the region of the chest wall that had been penetrated by the tumor...

BACKGROUND: Capillary hemangiomas occasionally occur in the peripheral nervous system (PNS), presenting as mass lesions causing proximal nerve root symptoms, thus prompting neurosurgical intervention. In contrast to cavernous angiomas, which may also occasionally involve the PNS, capillary hemangiomas have little or no tendency for acute or chronic bleeding and, hence, lack the apoplectic symptomatic onset and neuroimaging features of hemosiderin deposition as seen in cavernous angiomas...

We report a rare case of a huge cavernous hemangioma arising in a male breast. A 60-year-old man first noticed 1 x 2 cm elastic hard nodule just below his right nipple ten years previously. It enlarged 5 x 5 cm over six years. When he came to our clinic, it was size of child head (510 mm in circumference),was an elastic hard with a rather smooth surface, and firmly fixed to the chest wall. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and multidetectocomputed tomography (MDCT)showed a large mass infiltrating into the chest wall...

Benign chest wall tumors are uncommon lesions that originate from blood vessels, nerves, bone, cartilage, or fat. Chest radiography is an important technique for evaluation of such tumors, especially those that originate from bone, because it can depict mineralization and thus indicate the diagnosis. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging are helpful in further delineating the location and extent of the tumor and in identifying tumor tissues and types. Although the radiologic manifestations of benign and malignant chest wall tumors frequently overlap, differences in characteristic location and appearance occasionally allow a differential diagnosis to be made with confidence...

A 59-year-old man with an enlarged left chest wall mass that had been followed up for 3 years underwent surgical resection. The mass was pathologically diagnosed as cavernous hemangioma of the rib. This is the fourth case of this rare disease to be reported. However, it suggests that hemangioma of the rib should be considered in the differential diagnosis of rib tumors, especially in asymptomatic patients.

Percutaneous, nonsurgical interventions using angiographic catheter techniques and radiologic guidance were used in the management of seven cases of various lesions of the chest and lungs. Successful catheter therapy included the embolization of a large, acquired, postinflammatory vascular malformation causing massive hemoptysis and a cavernous hemangioma of the chest wall. Sixteen pulmonary arteriovenous fistulas (one patient), an iatrogenic internal mammary artery-to-innominate vein fistula, and a persistent, postbiopsy bronchopleural fistula were successfully closed...
