J N Wright, V Wycoco
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: PHACES syndrome is a complex of morphologic abnormalities of unknown cause and includes posterior fossa abnormalities; head and neck infantile hemangiomas; arterial, cardiac, and eye anomalies; and sternal or abdominal wall defects. Accurate identification of the syndrome is important for optimal treatment. The purpose of this study was to investigate the incidence of asymmetric Meckel cave enlargement, a potential novel imaging marker, in a population of patients referred for evaluation of possible PHACES syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Lymphangiomas are benign lymphatic vessel hamartomas typically found in the skin or subcutaneous tissue of the head and neck. Although mostly seen in a congenital context, acquired forms have been reported. By contrast, cavernous hemangiomas are benign hamartomas of endothelial origin. They can arise anywhere in the body, but are typically described as arising from the central nervous system. METHODS: We report the case of a young patient who developed a mixed lymphangioma and cavernous hemangioma within the ulnar nerve...

OBJECTIVE: Although hemangiomas are common lesions of the head and neck, sinonasal hemangiomas are rare. The purpose of this study was to analyze the clinical features (sex, age, symptoms, and size and anatomical location of the lesion) and the histological findings of sinonasal hemangioma cases, to assess preoperative transarterial embolization, and to evaluate the outcome (recurrence or no recurrence) of endoscopic sinus surgery. METHODS: Clinical records of 31 patients who underwent endoscopic sinus surgery for resection of sinonasal hemangioma between January 2010 and June 2015 were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: To assess the utility of color and spectral Doppler ultrasound at predicting infantile hemangioma (IH) response to timolol. METHODS: Eighty-three children (0-6 months old) with IH were treated with topical 0.5% timolol maleate twice daily for 6 months. They underwent color and spectral Doppler sonographic examinations at the first visit and 1 month after beginning timolol. Hemangioma volume, arterial diameter (AD), venous diameter (VD), resistance index (RI), pulsatility index (PI), peak arterial systolic velocity (PASV), maximum venous velocity, and mean venous velocity were measured...

Here we present an extremely rare case of giant infantile hemangiopericytoma (HPC) of the tongue diagnosed prenatally by fetal ultrasonography and MR imaging. Due to airway stenosis, the patient was delivered by the ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) procedure at 36 weeks of pregnancy. Initial diagnosis was infantile hemangioma based on physical examination, diagnostic imaging and the high incidence of hemangioma. The tumor was resistant to conservative treatments. Due to severe tumor hemorrhage, the nutrient vessel was embolized by endovascular treatment on the 73th day after birth...

Background Lobular capillary hemangioma is a rare benign tumor, most frequently located in the head or neck region, the nasal cavity being uncommonly affected. Its etiopathogenesis is not fully established, although traumatic and hormonal factors have been implied. Case Description A 50-year-old female patient underwent an uneventful endoscopic transsphenoidal removal of a pituitary cystic macroadenoma at our institution. Nasal packing was used in postoperative hemostasis. Histopathology was compatible with a gonadotrophin-producing adenoma...

BACKGROUND: Cervico-mediastinal hemangiomas in adulthood are rare and slow-growing vascular tumors. The optimal treatment for giant hemangiomas is controversial. In asymptomatic cases, clinical observation is generally recommended. METHODS: We report the transoral resection of a pharyngolaryngeal hemangioma (diameters of 44 × 56 × 39 mm) with tracheal involvement and mediastinal extension. Clinically, the patient had throat foreign body sensation, severe dyspnea and stridor...

The 2017 fourth edition of the World Health Organization Classification of Tumours, specifically as it relates to the ear (Chap. 9), has several changes. Importantly, the number of entities has been significantly reduced by omitting tumors or lesions if they do not occur exclusively or predominantly at this site or if they are discussed in detail elsewhere in the book. These entities include: embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, osteoma, exostosis, angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia, Schneiderian papilloma, inverted papilloma, lipoma of the internal auditory canal, hemangioma, hematolymphoid tumors, and secondary tumors...

PURPOSE: Hemangioma is a common benign vascular lesion of the head and neck region. It rarely involves the mucous membranes of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses. It should be added to the differential diagnosis of nasal cavity masses when the presenting symptoms are epistaxis or nasal obstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted of a histologic diagnosis of lobular capillary hemangioma or cavernous hemangioma of the sinonasal mucous membranes treated at the Chonbuk National University Hospital from January 1995 through December 2015...

Importance: The current standard of treatment for infantile hemangiomas (IHs) involves initial observation for regression throughout infancy and childhood, with or without medical management with β-blocker medications. Approximately 50% of the lesions respond almost completely to this regimen. However, the remaining 50% of the lesions, especially established focal IHs of the lip, nose, eyelids, forehead, cheek, and scalp, do not regress completely with this regimen or do so leaving a deformity; among these lesions, early surgical management may result in a superior aesthetic and functional outcome...

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.

Intramuscular hemangiomas are rare benign vascular neoplasms. IMH accounts for less than 1% of all hemangiomas. These neoplasms commonly occur in trunk and extremities but are rare in head and neck region. The present case is a 17-year-old female patient, who presented with a painless, slowly enlarging mass in left sided upper neck for 4 years. Investigations were suggestive of vascular neoplasm. She underwent excision of the mass in toto under general anesthesia. Postoperative period was uneventful. Histopathological examination of the mass revealed it as mixed type of intramuscular hemangioma...

Spindle cell hemangioma, formerly known as spindle cell hemangioendothelioma, was described by Weiss and Enzinger in 1986. Since the advent of immunohistochemical studies it is no longer considered as low grade angiosarcoma. It is a benign vascular tumor It almost exclusively affects the dermis at the distal ends. We report the first case of a patient with spindle cell hemangioma located in the scapular, breast, thighs and mandibular area. According to the literature, only 9 cases located in the head and neck were reported...

BACKGROUND: Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia -- also known as Masson tumor -- is a rare, benign vascular condition that manifests on the skin as a firm, blue-black colored nodule or papule. Lesions range in size from 0.25 to 5 centimeters in diameter and may be tender or painless. In some individuals, nodules appear red colored, mimicking hemangioma or pyogenic granuloma. Histologically, intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia is characterized by the presence of an organizing thrombus in the vascular lumen with accompanying hyperplastic endothelial cell proliferation...

Soft tissue robotics found its trigger for success in minimally invasive surgery. The minimization of the surgical damage is more obvious as the surgical alternative is more aggressive. In head and neck surgery, potential sequelae are both functional and cosmetic. Robotic instrumentation might allow for further development of the transoral approach to the deep regions of the face.The authors present an uneventful, fully robotic, transoral surgical excision of a parapharyngeal hemangioma. The authors discuss management alternatives, surgical risks, and safety measures...
