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...

OBJECTIVE Cutaneous stigmata or congenital anomalies often prompt screening for occult spinal dysraphism (OSD) in asymptomatic infants. While a number of studies have examined the results of ultrasonography (US) screening, less is known about the findings when MRI is used as the primary imaging modality. The object of this study was to assess the results of MRI screening for OSD in infants. METHODS The authors undertook a retrospective review of all infants who had undergone MRI of the lumbar spine to screen for OSD over a 6-year period (September 2006-September 2012)...

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...

Cavernous hemangioma is the most common orbital tumor in adult. There is lot of literatures for clinicopathological features of this tumor. These tumors had been studied for the model of angiogenesis in many of the experimental setups. We present a case of 34-year-old male with this tumor in the left eye with computerized tomography evidence. Postsurgical laboratory findings gave interesting evidence of tumor angiogenesis with tumor endothelial cells and sprouting of the small vessels endothelial cells. Podosome rosette could be conceptualized from the characteristic patterns seen in the tumor...

BACKGROUND: Liver cancer exhibits geographic and ethnic differences in its prevalence and biology, which implies that it is impractical to develop universal guidelines for all patients. Thus, a meta-analysis was conducted to identify the accuracy of apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs) for discriminating malignant from benign liver lesions in Asians. METHODS: Eligible studies published in PubMed, Ovid, and Embase/Medline were updated onto October 2014. STATA 12...

Vascular lesions of the solid abdominal viscera may pose diagnostic and management issues. A 16-year old girl admitted to emergency department due to recurrent abdominal pain and diagnosed to have multiple vascular malformations of the spleen on imaging investigations. Littoral cell angioma was preoperative suspicion owing to no response of the vascular lesion to the propranolol. It turned out to be cavernous hemangioma on histopathology.

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: Masson's hemangioma is a rare pathological entity, featuring intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia. Although benign, this hemangioma grows to form an expansile compressing mass. This lesion is mostly seen in skin and subcutaneous tissue. Occurrence in neuraxis is rare for this pathological entity. Still rarer is the spinal location with only 5 case reports published till date in medical literature. CASE DESCRIPTION: Here we present a 26 year old male with paraplegia due to extradural compression at D4, D5 level...

Pre-expanded perforator flaps have several advantages over their traditional counterparts owing to the thin, more pliable nature, larger size, and minimum morbidity of the donor site. Recently, plastic surgeons have begun to use pre-expanded perforator flaps to reconstruct defects of almost the entire body, including the cervicofacial region, axilla, trunk, and extremities resulting from scar, congenital melanocytic nevi, hemangiomas, and neurofibromas. Such a versatile flap is especially appropriate for face and neck resurfacing, which requires more optimal functional and cosmetic outcomes...

Ophthalmologic involvement in Sturge-Weber-Krabbe syndrome (SWKS) is present in 30-70% of cases and needs to be reviewed because of its impact on visual development. We report a case of a newborn for whom SSWK with ophthalmologic involvement was suspected. She had a right segmental plane angioma associated with right congenital glaucoma and suspected right pial angioma. Ophthalmic involvement in SWKS may be nonocular: iatrogenic by treatment-associated complications and central by leptomeningeal damage. Ophthalmologic involvement can occur throughout childhood and is mainly represented by glaucoma and diffuse choroidal hemangioma and then conjunctival hemangioma, retinal detachment, and iris heterochromia...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to define morbidities and costs related to modern-day medical care for children with vascular anomalies. METHODS: We reviewed the 2003-2009 Kids' Inpatient Database for pediatric patients (age < 21 years) hospitalized with hemangioma, arteriovenous malformation (AVM), or lymphatic malformation (LM). Patient characteristics, hospital complications, and hospital charges were compared by vascular anomaly type. Multivariable linear regression modeling was used to determine predictors of increasing hospital costs for patients with AVMs...

Hemangioma of the rib is a rare benign vascular tumor. Herein, we report a 63-year-old man presenting with hemangioma of the left sixth rib. An osteolytic eccentric expansive mass with calcification and focal cortical disruption was detected on chest computed tomography (CT). The mass showed low 2-deoxy-2-[18F]-fluoro-D-glucose (18F-FDG) avidity on positron emission tomography. The patient underwent resection of the left sixth rib. Based on the histopathology findings, a diagnosis of cavernous hemangioma was made...

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...

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a severe neurodegenerative disorder caused by progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta of the midbrain. The molecular mechanism of PD pathogenesis is unclear. Mutations in the leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) gene are a common genetic cause of familial and sporadic PD. However, studies on LRRK2 mutant mice revealed no visible dopaminergic neuronal loss in the midbrain. While surveying a LRRK2 knockout mouse strain, we found that old animals developed age-dependent hepatic vascular growths similar to cavernous hemangiomas...

Primary spinal tumors are rare. Symptoms depend on size and location of the tumor. In the current case the patient presented with a rare clinical finding, Brown-Séquard syndrome. The symptoms were caused by an extramedullary tumor compressing on the thoracic spinal cord. Pathologic examination showed cavernous hemangioma, which had growth both intra- and extraduralt. This is an an extremely rare finding and to our knowledge only one case report has been published before were spinal cavernous hemangioma had intra- and extradural growth...
