BACKGROUND: Infantile hemangiomas (IHs) are the most common vascular tumors in children. Because of their benign character and natural involution, the vast majority of IHs do not require any treatment. In the past few years, topical beta blockers have been reported to be an effective treatment of superficial IHs. OBJECTIVE: We sought to evaluate the clinical effectiveness and safety profile of topical propranolol 4% gel for the treatment of IHs. METHODS: A retrospective study of all cases of IHs treated with topical propranolol 4% gel between 2013 and 2015 was performed...

BACKGROUND: Primary osseous hemangiomas of the facial skeleton mimic malignancy. Their location in maxillary sinus, especially in infants is extremely rare. CASE CHARACTERISTICS: 1- month-old full term boy with maxillary swelling. OBSERVATIONS: Biopsy from oral route revealed hemangioma showing vascular channels lined by endothelial cells. Patient improved on oral steroids. MESSAGE: Hemangiomas should be considered as one of the differential diagnosis of unilateral maxillary swelling in infants...

PURPOSE: Oral propranolol has been recently approved for infantile hemangiomas (IHs), but potential side effects stay a challenge. We sought to make an additional assessment on oral propranolol safety for this indication. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Prospective study included 108 infants consecutively treated for IHs at the University Children's Hospital Tirsova, Belgrade from January 2010 to December 2013. Propranolol was administered orally at a daily dose of 0.5 mg/kg and doubled every 48 hours in the absence of side effects until reaching the maximum dose of 2 mg/kg daily...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Infantile hemangiomas (IHs) are commonly encountered in primary care and most often remain asymptomatic, resolving without sequelae. Certain characteristics are associated with a greater risk of complications, associated anomalies, and disfigurement. The heterogeneous presentation poses a clinical challenge for physicians in determining the need for treatment and subspecialty referral. This study aims to evaluate the utility of the previously published Hemangioma Severity Scale (HSS) to predict the need for treatment...

The authors describe a case of myeloid sarcoma of the orbit in a pediatric patient. An 8-month-old male infant presented to the ophthalmology clinic with a left orbital mass, which had been increasing in size over the previous 2 months. The mass was initially diagnosed at another clinic as an infantile hemangioma, and had been treated with a topical formulation of timolol. In the ophthalmology clinic, orbital magnetic resonance imaging showed a solid enhancing mass. A biopsy was performed, and histopathology revealed myeloid sarcoma...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Infantile hemangioma (IH) includes, among its other risk factors, familial clustering, but a definitive understanding of IH's inheritance model and genetic basis is lacking. Our objective was to collect IH pedigrees in Finland, to study the inheritance patterns of IH within these families, and to analyze the characteristics of familial IHs. METHODS: We identified 185 patients with IH who visited our vascular anomaly clinic between 2004 and 2007...

FABP4 is widely expressed in both normal and pathologic tissues. It promotes cell proliferation, survival and migration of endothelial cells, and therefore, angiogenesis. However, the role of FABP4 in hemangioma or hemangioma endothelial cells (HemECs) has not been explored. In this study, we investigated whether FABP4 directly regulates the proliferation of HemECs. The expression of cell cycle checkpoint genes was analyzed with the microarray data of human dermal microvascular endothelial cells (HDVECs) and infantile hemangioma endothelial cells...

BACKGROUND: Infantile hemangiomas (IH) are common benign tumors in infancy. Most IH resolve spontaneously, but some require treatment due to ulceration, functional impairment or cosmetic disfiguration. While systemic propranolol is effective in many cases, laser therapy may be a safe topical alternative. OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of combined Nd:YAG/pulsed dye laser (PDL) or PDL alone for therapy of IH. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 271 IH in 149 infants were treated with combined Nd:YAG/PDL or PDL alone...

Congenital infantile fibrosarcoma (CIFS) is a rare neoplasm of infancy that occurs most frequently in the extremities, and when presenting in the skin, may sometimes resemble infantile hemangiomas or other vascular lesions. Clinically, these tumors differ from hemangiomas in the time of onset, morphology, and growth pattern and must be evaluated histologically for definitive diagnosis. We describe an infant with a neoplasm involving the distal left forearm initially presumed to be a vascular lesion after evaluation by two separate ultrasound studies...

Infantile hemangiomas are the most common vascular neoplasm that present in infancy, with more than half affecting the head and neck region. Periocularly, hemangiomas may be complicated by visual loss through induction of strabismal, deprivational, or anisometropic astigmatism. We report a case of a 5-year-old girl who presented with orbital hemangioma with potential risk of visual loss who had excellent response to propranolol.

BACKGROUND: Infantile hemangioma (IH) with minimal or arrested growth (IH-MAG) is becoming increasingly recognized in the literature. It is important to be aware of their existence, because the correct diagnosis is essential for prognostication and treatment and, in the case of facial segmental lesions, the direction of further investigations if PHACE (posterior fossa abnormalities and other structural brain abnormalities; hemangioma(s) of the cervical facial region; arterial cerebrovascular anomalies; cardiac defects, aortic coarctation, and other aortic abnormalities; eye anomalies) syndrome or Sturge-Weber syndrome is suspected...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Beta-adrenergic antagonists have been established as first line treatment in the medical management of hypertension, acute coronary syndrome and other cardiovascular diseases, as well as for the prevention of initial episodes of gastrointestinal bleeding in patients with cirrhosis and esophageal varices, glaucoma, and have recently become the main form of treatment of infantile hemangiomas. The aim of the present study is to calculate for 14 beta-blockers several quantum chemical descriptors in order to interpret various molecular properties such as electronic structure, conformation, reactivity, in the interest of determining how such descriptors could have an impact on our understanding of the experimental observations and describing various aspects of chemical binding of beta-blockers in terms of these descriptors...

BACKGROUND: Infantile hemangiomas (IHs) are the most common benign vascular tumors of childhood. Propranolol is an effective drug in treating IH. A reliable and complementary instrument is necessary to evaluate IH response to propranolol in addition to clinical and photographic assessments. Ultrasonography is a simple and non-invasive technique that enables precise measurements of tumor size and contributes to objective follow-up. OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the use of serial ultrasonography as an adjunctive tool for assessment of IH treatment with propranolol...
