capillary hemangioma tongue

V Satish, Manohar Bhat, Prabhadevi C Maganur, Parth Shah, Vijay Biradar
Hemangiomas are relatively common benign proliferative lesion of vascular tissue origin. They are often present at birth and may become more apparent throughout life. They are seen on facial skin, tongue, lips, buccal mucosa and palate as well as muscles. Hemangiomas occur more common in females than males. This case report presents a case of capillary hemangioma in maxillary anterior region in a 10-year-old boy. How to cite this article: Satish V, Bhat M, Maganur PC, Shah P, Biradar V.

Haemangiomas are benign fibrovascular tumours relatively that are common in the head and neck, where 60% of them occur Among the various categories of haemangiomas, lobular capillary haemangiomas (LCH) occur frequently on the skin, lips, buccal mucosa, tongue and gingiva. However, they are vanishingly rare in the paranasal sinuses. The imaging features of LCH are non-specific. The histological characteristics of LCH can also make diagnosis difficult as sometimes resemble highly vascular malignant tumours. This leads to the false preoperative diagnosis of suspected malignancy in many cases, which places the patient under unnecessary distress and anxiety...

Lymphangiomas are rare congenital malformations which are commonly seen in the head and neck region. The disease can be histologically differentiated from other vascular disorders such as cavernous or capillary hemangioma with the lymphatic endothelium-lined cystic spaces. The onset of lymphangiomas are either at birth (60 to 70%) or up to two years of age (90%). It is rare in adults. The therapeutic strategy is mainly based on the surgical removal of the lesion. The risk of recurrence is high in incomplete removal of the lesion...

Vascular anomalies are a heterogeneous group of congenital blood vessel disorders more typically referred to as birthmarks. Subcategorized into vascular tumors and malformations, each anomaly is characterized by specific morphology, pathophysiology, clinical behavior, and management approach. Hemangiomas are the most common vascular tumors. Lymphatic, capillary, venous, and arteriovenous malformations make up the majority of vascular malformations. Arteriovenous malformation of the head and neck is a rare vascular anomaly but when present is persistent and progressive in nature and can represent a lethal benign disease...

Verrucous hemangiomas are a rare specific variant of equine skin tumors not well described in the literature. An 8-year-old gelding presented a unilateral lesion on the pastern. Macroscopically, the mass showed a warty and verrucous surface with focal ulcerations. The histology showed a dermal proliferation of endothelial-layered capillaries and venules separated by a delicate stroma of scant fibroblasts and collagen deposition, with pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia (exuberant reactive irregular epithelial hyperplasia with tongue-like projections extending into the dermis, mimicking downgrowth of squamous cell carcinoma) and orthokeratotic hyperkeratosis of the overlying epidermis...

BACKGROUND: The histogenesis of neoplastic spindle cells of Kaposi's sarcoma is still uncertain, but some studies consider it a lymphatic vessel differentiation. Prox-1 is a nuclear transcription factor that plays a major role during embryonic lymphangiogenesis, and it has been considered a specific and sensitive lymphatic endothelial cell marker. The aim of this study was to determine the expression of Prox-1 in oral Kaposi's sarcoma comparing the results with oral benign vascular tumors including capillary hemangiomas and pyogenic granulomas...

Angiokeratoma is a very rare vascular lesion of the papillary dermis. It is characterized by vascular ectasia with overlying epidermal hyperkeratosis. The systemic form of angiokeratoma is associated with Fabry disease and fucosidosis. There are several localized forms. Tongue involvement is uncommon. Hemangiomas are tumors made up of capillaries; they grow by active endothelial proliferation as opposed to expansion of vascular spaces in vascular malformations. Lingual hemangiomas are usually indolent, but they can cause cosmetic deformities, recurrent hemorrhage, and functional problems with speaking, mastication, and deglutition...

An F-FDG-PET with CT scan was performed to stage a tongue cancer, revealing the hypermetabolic region in the thoracic vertebra. This corresponded to a benign lesion seen on MRIs and CT.Although these findings suggested a vertebral hemangioma, "hot" vertebra in FDG-PET was atypical. The final diagnosis was confirmed capillary hemangioma by the scopic biopsy and this lesion was no change at 1 year later.Careful interpretation of metabolic (FDG-PET) and anatomic (CT and MRI) images should be performed to accurately characterize the foci of increased FDG uptake...

Pyogenic granulomas and hemangiomas of oral cavity are well-known benign lesions. Although pyogenic granuloma is known to show a striking predilection for the gingiva and capillary hemangioma for lips, check, and tongue, palatal occurrence of these lesions is extremely rare. The clinical diagnosis of such an uncommon occurrence can be quite challenging as they sometimes may mimic more serious lesions such as malignancies. The purpose of this article is to report an unusual case of benign tumor occurring on hard palate which was clinically diagnosed as pyogenic granuloma and histopathologically as capillary hemangioma...

OBJECTIVE: Klippel-Trénaunay syndrome (KTS) is characterized by triad of venous varicosity, naevus flammeus, and soft/hard tissue hypertrophy. Manifestations of the syndrome in the head and neck region are rare, but in some cases hemangioma of the lips, tongue, and gums, open bite and cross bite, and early tooth eruption are associated with the disease. STUDY DESIGN: We report a 12-year-old KTS patient with gingival hyperplasia, congenital missing teeth, and increased mucosal vascularization as oral manifestations...

Pyogenic granuloma is a lobular capillary hemangioma that occurs mostly on the skin and the mucosal surfaces of the oral cavity and tongue. Only a few cases in other parts of the digestive tract have been reported. Gastrointestinal pyogenic granuloma is a rare cause of hemorrhage in the digestive tract, but should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with gastrointestinal bleeding. We report the case of a 62-year-old anemic woman found to have a pyogenic granuloma of the duodenum, which was treated adequately by endoscopic mucosal resection...

Haemangiomas are benign vascular tumours and several types can be distinguished based on microscopical features. Capillary and cavernous haemangiomas are most commonly reported in man and domestic animals. Arteriovenous haemangiomas are rare variants in man and herein we describe this subtype in two dogs and one cat. One dog and the cat presented with a cutaneous vascular lesion, the other dog with a bleeding mass in the tongue. Surgically excised masses comprised non-encapsulated proliferations of variably sized arterial- and venous-like vessels, accompanied by clusters of capillaries and immature vascular structures in the feline cutaneous tumour and the canine lingual neoplasm...

This report outlines the pathologic findings of epithelioid angiomatous nodule and spindle cell hemangiomatosis and briefly discusses the list of differential diagnoses. Although prevalent in the skin, both the above acquired vascular lesions are rarely described in the oral cavity. It should be realized that their microscopic features often raise concern for malignancy.

Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) of the tongue is a rare lesion of the cranio-facial vascular anomaly. Decision making concerning the vascular anomaly is not established because there are complex classifications of diagnosis and many treatment options. We report a case of AVM of the tongue, and review vascular anatomy and knowledge for treating this lesion. A 50-year-old man presented with dysarthria, sleep apnea and snoring because of a mass lesion of his sublingual region that had become larger over a two-year period...

There are two histological types of pyogenic granuloma (PG) of the oral cavity: the lobular capillary hemangioma (LCH) and non-LCH type. The aim of the present study was to examine and compare the clinical features, etiological factors, diameter of vascular elements and immunohistochemical features of LCH and non-LCH histological types of PG to determine whether they are two distinct entities. Thirty cases of LCH and 26 cases of non-LCH PG were retrieved and retrospectively studied. Clinically, LCH PG occurred more frequently (66...

Lobular capillary hemangioma (LCH), also called pyogenic granuloma, is a benign vascular tumor that is pedunculated on the skin and the mucous membranes of the oral cavity. This disease occurs in all ages, but more often in the 3rd decade, and is seen in females more than males. LCH commonly appears in early childhood and affects males more than females in the pediatric age group. The gingiva, lips, tongue and buccal mucosa are the most common sites of mucosal LCH, but the nasal cavity is rare. Micro-trauma and hormonal factors are the most common etiologic factors...

Intramuscular vascular lesions in the tongue are rare and are usually the capillary form of haemangioma. A case is described of a lingual mass that resembled intramuscular haemangioma but had unique histological features that do not appear to have been described previously. The term intramuscular capillary hamartoma is suggested to describe it.
