  • [Title] Intravascular large B cell lymphoma diagnosed by senile angioma biopsy.
  • We performed a skin biopsy from two typical senile angiomas.
  • In one of these biopsy specimens, a capillary hemangioma was present in the mid-reticular dermis and it was filled with abnormal B cells.
  • The diagnosis of intravascular B cell lymphoma (IVL) was thus established.
  • However, it is recently thought that if the diagnosis is established early, aggressive chemotherapy increases survival.
  • Senile angioma is a skin eruption that is considered prevalent for the most part in elderly people.
  • If a patient is suspected to have IVL, and there is no appropriate site of biopsy, it might be beneficial to try a skin biopsy aiming at senile angiomas for early diagnosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Intravascular large B-cell lymphoma involving hemangiomas: an unusual presentation of a rare neoplasm.
  • We report the clinicopathological features of two cases of intravascular large B-cell lymphoma involving cutaneous hemangiomas.
  • Both patients were women, 64 and 55 years of age, who presented with long-standing cutaneous hemangiomas of the posterior scalp and left shoulder, respectively.
  • Biopsies and immunohistochemical evaluation of the hemangiomas revealed extensive involvement by intravascular large B-cell lymphoma.
  • Disease was limited to the hemangiomas in both patients.
  • Treatment consisted of chemotherapy (both patients) and adjuvant radiation therapy (one patient).
  • One patient had a recurrence of disease 33 months after initial diagnosis, leading to an autologous stem cell transplant.
  • The other patient is without evidence of disease 27 months after initial diagnosis.
  • Although this is a rare neoplasm, it is important to consider intravascular large B-cell lymphoma in the differential diagnosis of vascular lesions containing intravascular neoplastic cells.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Head and Neck Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Head and neck hemangiomas: how and when to treat].
  • Hemangiomas are common benign vascular tumors of infancy characterized by a proliferative growth phase followed by very slow inevitable regression (involutive phase) between one to ten years of age, about 60% to 70% of the lesions are found in the head and neck region.
  • There are many treatment modalities reported in the literature for head and neck hemangiomas, including wait and see policy, drug therapy, sclerotherapy (steroids, bleomycin), cryotherapy, isotope radiotherapy, laser therapy, and surgical therapy.
  • There still exist many controversies over the optimal treatment options for individual patient.
  • Based on our clinical experience on 250 cases and literature review, a rational treatment regime for head and neck hemangioma was proposed in this study:.
  • (1) As it is not possible to predict, whether a hemangioma will remain small and unproblematic or grow into a very large lesion, early therapy is the only way out of this dilemma.
  • A white or pink macule, a port-wine stain-like lesion initially appearing in the children can be effectively and easily removed by laser, thus preventing a growth in the size in the early stage. (2) The term of "wait and see" should be substituted by "close observation", and this approach should only be reserved for hemangiomas which are without visible growth or in the involutive phase. (3) Systematic drug therapy (steroids, interferon alpha-2a ) should be considered for large hemangioma, multiple hemangiomas, life-threatening hemangiomas and hemangiomas with complications such as ulceration, infection, bleeding, dysfunction, etc.
  • Congestive heart failure, consumptive coagulopathy, and thrombocytopenia are also urgent indications for the institution of corticoid therapy. (4) Growing hemangioma can be treated effectively by systematic drug therapy, sclerotherapy, laser therapy or combined therapy.
  • The argon laser (514 nm in wavelength, 0.5 mm in depth) is useful in the treatment of superficial telangiectasias and small, flat cutaneous hemangiomas.
  • Flashlamp-pumped pulsed-dye laser (FPDL, 585 nm or 595 nm in wavelength, 1.0-2.0 mm in depth) can be used in patients with cutaneous and flat hemangiomas at the sites of potential functional impairment.
  • Nd: YAG laser (1064 nm in wavelength) with continuous ice cube cooling is useful for subcutaneous or mixed hemangiomas, and often requires repeated treatments.
  • For larger and deeper hemangiomas up to a depth of 2.0 cm, percutaneous interstitial Nd:YAG laser treatment may be preferred, because it may decrease possible cutaneous skin damage and more effectively reduce bulky, deep lesion. (5) Topical application of imiquimoid and intratumoral injection of steroids or bleomycin can be used in selected patients with rapidly growing hemangioma. (6) The indication for a primary operation is rare and limited to large hemangiomas in the eyelid or hemangiomas on the scalp.
  • Surgical correction of large residuals, especially before formal education begins, to prevent considerable psychosocial impairment is still a well established procedure.
  • The aim of treatment is to counter the proliferative growth, reduce the volume of hemangioma, and initialize the process of regression.
  • Cryotherapy or isotope radiotherapy is nowadays seldom used for the treatment of hemangiomas, due to the high incidence of scarring, pigmentation, or depigmentation.
  • A successful treatment of hemangiomas should be individualized and based on the size of the tumor, the localization, and the therapies available.

  • [Title] Kasabach-Merritt syndrome: case reports of successful treatment with partial tumor resection and vincristine chemotherapy.
  • The huge tumor is the major cause of rapid platelet destruction, so we supposed the reduction of tumor size could reduce the platelet destruction and improve the clinical condition.
  • In our cases, the vascular tumor occupied one of the extremities, or the head or face.
  • However, removal of the whole tumor would have resulted in the amputation of this extremity or the destruction of the face, and partial tumor removal was suitable.
  • The wound could be repaired with skin graft.
  • Vincristine chemotherapy after the operation was necessary to prevent the enlargement of the remaining tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Metaplastic ossification in a cutaneous pyogenic granuloma: a case report.
  • Cutaneous ossification may occur in association with a variety of cutaneous neoplasms and inflammatory conditions, such as pilomatricomas, basal cell carcinomas, nevi, chondroid syringomas, venous stasis, and scars.
  • However, it has rarely been reported in pyogenic granuloma, a relatively common benign vascular tumor of the skin and mucous membranes.
  • We herein presented a rare case of cutaneous pyogenic granuloma with ectopic ossification on the big toe of a 37-year-old man, with high recurrence despite repeated CO2 laser ablations.
  • We propose the hypothesis that vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) play pathologic roles in the development of ectopic bone formation in pyogenic granuloma.

  • We report a case of POEMS (polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal gammopathy, and skin changes) syndrome in a 55-year-old African American woman in which human herpesvirus-8 (HHV-8) was demonstrated within rare lymphocytes in a Castleman disease lymph node biopsy and numerous endothelial cells and lymphocytes in a microvenular hemangioma skin biopsy.
  • Initial symptoms and findings of night sweats, weight loss, anorexia, generalized lymphadenopathy, and hemangiomas improved after chemotherapy with cyclophosphamide and prednisone.
  • However, in the year following the initial diagnosis, the patient suffered from recurrent bouts of night sweats, gastroparesis, and lymphadenopathy, which required further treatment with plasmapheresis, cyclophosphamide, prednisone, and rituximab.
  • Although HHV-8 has previously been detected in POEMS-associated Castleman disease tissue, to our knowledge, this is the first case report in which HHV-8 has been directly demonstrated within the endothelial cells of a POEMS-associated hemangioma.

  • After chemotherapy, other manifestations of POEMS syndrome developed, such as multiple haemangiomas over the chest and neck region, splenomegaly and generalized oedema.
  • One haemangioma had a peculiar clinical morphology, similar to the appearance of cerebral gyri.
  • Skin biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of glomeruloid haemangioma.
  • Chemotherapy was then switched to cyclophosphamide and prednisolone, resulting in further improvement in muscle power and hypertrichosis.
  • To our knowledge, this is the first report on a clinically distinctive morphology of glomeruloid haemangioma, and its recognition may increase the index of suspicion for early skin biopsy.

  • [Title] Multiple cutaneous infantile hemangiomas associated with hepatic angiosarcoma: case report and review of the literature.
  • Multiple cutaneous hemangiomas can be associated with internal hemangiomas, with the liver being the most common site.
  • Here we report a case of a premature female neonate who presented with cardiac failure at birth and had typical-appearing infantile hemangiomas on the skin in association with vascular lesions in the liver.
  • Her clinical presentation was felt to be consistent with cutaneous and hepatic infantile hemangiomas.
  • After failure to respond to systemic steroids and chemotherapy, she underwent liver transplantation.
  • Histopathologic evaluation of the liver revealed a diagnosis of type 2 infantile hepatic hemangioendothelioma (regarded as synonymous with angiosarcoma) rather than benign infantile hemangioma of the liver.
  • Subsequent skin biopsies confirmed that her multiple cutaneous lesions were infantile hemangiomas and not metastatic angiosarcoma.
  • We report this case and a review of the literature on pediatric angiosarcoma of the liver associated with cutaneous infantile hemangiomas.

  • Hepatic hemangioendothelioma (HE) is a tumor that presents in infancy and toddler.
  • The diagnosis was made by the histology specimen or various imaging studies.
  • The common clinical manifestations included abdominal distention (53%), congestive heart failure (38.5%), abdominal mass (30.8%), jaundice (30.8%), and skin hemangioma (23.1%).
  • Computed tomography (n = 11) revealed central hypointensity with peripheral enhancement after contrast of the liver masses.
  • Other management included interferon, chemotherapy, embolization and/or surgery.
  • Among the other nine patients, four patients died of sepsis, hepatic failure, disseminated intravascular coagulopathy or tumor rupture with hemorrhagic shock.
  • HE appears to be a histologically benign tumor but may have a poor outcome because of complications.
  • For its management, steroid is a first-line medication.
  • Other methods of treatment were interferon, hepatic artery embolization, chemotherapy and surgery.

  • [Title] Segmental hemangiomas of the upper airway.
  • OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: To characterize the anatomic distribution of segmental hemangiomas of the larynx and to describe indications for treatment modalities.
  • METHODS: We performed a retrospective chart review of patients with cutaneous hemangiomas at a tertiary care center over a 4-year period.
  • Only patients with upper airway hemangiomas were studied.
  • We reviewed the anatomic distribution of hemangiomas within the upper airway and the treatment course of each patient.
  • RESULTS: Of 1,226 patients with cutaneous hemangiomas, 108 (9%) were segmental in distribution.
  • All of these patients had associated V3 or mandibular segmental hemangiomas.
  • As with the cutaneous manifestation, the distribution of hemangioma within the upper airway was segmental.
  • One patient received chemotherapy prior to referral.
  • Surgical treatment included tracheostomy (four patients prior to referral) and laser ablation of subglottic involvement (total of four patients).
  • CONCLUSIONS: A high percentage of patients with V3 cutaneous hemangiomas (29%) will manifest with upper airway involvement, the distribution of which is segmental.
  • Treatment should take this diffuse pattern of involvement into consideration.

  • Kasabach-Merritt phenomenon (KMP) is a rare thrombocytopenic consumption coagulopathy associated with an enlarging tufted angioma or kaposiform hemangioendothelioma.
  • We report a case series of patients with KMP and discuss the treatment options and outcomes.
  • Nine patients with a diagnosis of KMP were identified through retrospective chart review-6 had "definite KMP" and 3 had "less likely KMP."
  • The hematologic features of KMP and those of chronic coagulopathy seen with other vascular malformations can be similar, which makes KMP difficult to distinguish.

  • OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Cobb syndrome is a rare clinical entity characterized by the combination of a vascular skin nevus and an angioma in the spinal canal at the same metamere.
  • CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 5-month-old girl presented with cutaneous hemangioma of the thoracolumbar region (T5-T12) and paraparesis.
  • INTERVENTION: The patient received orally administered prednisolone therapy and underwent endovascular embolization of paravertebral and spinal angiomas with the use of n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate.
  • Her symptoms improved by combined treatment with liquid embolization and corticosteroid therapy.
  • To our knowledge, this is the first report of an infant with Cobb syndrome treated with endovascular embolization and corticosteroid therapy.
  • The combined treatment with corticosteroid therapy and endovascular embolization of cutaneomeningospinal angioma in Cobb syndrome seems effective in alleviating symptoms and minimizing morbidity.

  • OBJECTIVE: To report our experience with propranolol in managing airway infantile hemangiomas.
  • DESIGN: Case series of 3 consecutive patients who had extensive, symptomatic airway infantile hemangiomas treated with propranolol.
  • PATIENTS: Three infants with facial cutaneous hemangiomas who developed stridor that progressed to respiratory distress, which according to laryngoscopic examination results was confirmed to be caused by extensive subglottic hemangiomas.
  • These patients underwent follow-up during their course of therapy, ranging from 3 weeks to 15 months.
  • RESULTS: Patient 1 failed to respond to systemic corticosteroids, laser ablation, and intravenous vincristine for her airway hemangioma and had to undergo tracheotomy.
  • Patient 2 developed progressive stridor secondary to airway hemangioma at age 6 1/2 months following tapering of systemic corticosteroids prescribed for her periorbital hemangioma.
  • Patient 3 was also treated with initial combined therapy of systemic corticosteroids and propranolol.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our 3 patients had severe respiratory symptoms related to their airway infantile hemangiomas.
  • In the first patient, propranolol was used when other treatments were ineffective or associated with intolerable adverse effects.

  • Blue Rubber Bleb Nevus Syndrome (BRBNS) is a rare condition characterized by multiple venous malformations involving the skin and internal organs.
  • Endoscopy is the gold standard technique for the diagnosis of BRBNS with GI lesions and also allows immediate therapeutic measures such as argon plasma coagulation, laser photocoagulation, sclerotherapy or band ligation.
  • In addition, pharmacological treatments based on corticosteroids, interferon alfa, vincristine or octreotide have been described for BRBNS.
  • CONCLUSION: Blue Rubber Bleb Nevus Syndrome is a congenital cutaneous and gastrointestinal haemangiomatosis.
  • The treatment is based on pharmacological or surgical therapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Children with segmental facial hemangiomas of infancy and one extracutaneous manifestation comprising PHACES (posterior fossa malformation, arteriovenous malformations, cardiac/aortic defects, eye anomalies, and sternal defect) were identified.
  • Treatment for cutaneous and airway hemangiomas included oral and intralesional steroids, CO(2) or pulse-dye laser, tracheotomy, and surgical excision.
  • RESULTS: Of 246 children with segmental facial hemangiomas of infancy evaluated since January 2000, 5 girls (2.0%) met diagnostic criteria for PHACES.
  • Otolaryngic abnormalities included middle ear atelectasis (1/5), tympanic membrane hemangiomas with conductive hearing loss (3/5), skin and cartilage ulceration (2/5), dysphagia (4/5), and airway hemangiomas with stridor (3/5).
  • Three children received oral steroids and required pulse-dye laser for cutaneous hemangiomas of infancy.
  • Additional interventions included tympanostomy tubes and resection of nasal hemangioma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Diagnosis of PHACES requires awareness of the association of facial hemangiomas of infancy with systemic and airway problems.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Successful treatment of cutaneous hemangioma of infancy with topical imiquimod 5%: a report of 3 cases.
  • Hemangioma of infancy is the most common benign tumor of childhood.
  • Most of these tumors spontaneously regress over several years.
  • However, many parents seek treatment for children with cutaneous hemangiomas because of the potential for disfigurement and the attendant psychosocial effects.
  • We report our use of the nightly application of topical imiquimod 5% cream as an alternative to traditional management in 3 infants who presented with rapidly growing facial hemangiomas.
  • After approximately 3 to 5 months of treatment, all 3 patients had experienced a near-complete resolution of their lesions without significant side effects.
  • Based on our experience, we believe that topical imiquimod may be an important tool for the otolaryngologist who treats cutaneous hemangiomas.

  • [Title] Emergent medical and surgical management of mediastinal infantile hemangioma with symptomatic spinal cord compression: case report and literature review.
  • PURPOSE: We report an extremely rare case of a patient with a large, cervical, and upper thoracic cutaneous hemangioma associated with a separate, underlying mediastinal hemangioma extending to the epidural space causing significant spinal cord compression.
  • She underwent emergent surgical decompression and medical therapy with propranolol and systemic corticosteroids.
  • CONCLUSION: While several recent reports have described dramatic responses of hemangiomas to propranolol, this is the first case in which it was used as part of a multimodal approach to symptomatic spinal cord compression.
  • She is neurologically intact and has radiographic regression of the hemangiomas on follow-up examination 6 months later.

  • [Title] [Beneficial effects of CHOP therapy in a case of intravascular large B-cell lymphoma diagnosed by skin biopsy].
  • A 52-year-old man gradually developed dementia and abnormal behaviors, which were later accompanied by spastic paraplegia and sensory disturbance in his lower limbs.
  • Many skin rashes that looked like senile hemangioma were observed on his body.
  • Several of those were biopsied, and the diagnosis of intravascular large B-cell lymphoma was made because of malignant B lymphocytes filling the vessel lumens in one of the seven biopsy specimens.
  • CHOP therapy was performed and found to be effective for the neurological disorders such as dementia, paraplegia, and sensory disturbance.
  • Our case suggests that skin biopsy for more than one sample of the skin rashes is very important for the diagnosis of intravascular large B-cell lymphoma.
  • CHOP therapy might be effective in this case because of early diagnosis by skin biopsy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Kaposiform hemangioendothelioma (KHE) is a rare tumor that occurs nearly exclusively during infancy and childhood.
  • It has features common to both capillary hemangioma and Kaposi sarcoma and for that reason many terms have been used for these tumors including "Kaposi-like infantile hemangioendothelioma" and "hemangioma with Kaposi sarcoma-like features."
  • Knowledge of the radiological findings of this uncommon tumor might be helpful for diagnosis.
  • We present the MRI features of a case of KHE with neither typical skin lesions nor the Kasabach-Merritt phenomenon.

  • BACKGROUND: Hemangioma is the most common tumor of infancy.
  • Although it has a basically benign nature and usually spontaneously regresses, a small percentage (5%) have complications that need treatment.
  • Many different therapeutic modalities can be used in this tumor.
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of a new method of treatment (intralesional bleomycin injection) in complicated hemangiomas.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: In the Department of Radiation Oncology at Nemazee Hospital in Shiraz, Iran, from April 1992 to October 1998, 32 patients with complicated hemangioma were treated with four to six courses of direct injection of bleomycin into the lesion.
  • CONCLUSION: Intralesional injection of bleomycin is an easy, safe, and effective therapeutic modality in complicated cutaneous hemangiomas.

  • [Title] Management of cutaneous hemangiomas: a retrospective analysis of 1109 cases and comparison of conventional dose prednisolone with high-dose methylprednisolone therapy.
  • The effectiveness of the different pharmacological agents and different doses of systemic corticosteroids was analyzed.
  • A total of 1109 patients (median age 8 months; F/M: 2.3) with hemangioma, followed up in our unit for 23 years, were evaluated retrospectively.
  • Two different pharmacological agents, prednisolone (in 26 patients) and methyl prednisolone (in 19 patients), had been used in three different regimens.
  • Then were no differences in response to therapy among the three regimens.
  • No difference was found in response to therapy between prednisolone and methylprednisolone and the two different doses of the methylprednisolone.
  • In multivariate analysis the dimension of the lesion (p = .0065) and age at initiation of treatment (p = .0041) were the most important factors affecting the response.
  • In conclusion, the systemic corticosteroids are effective in 36% of patients, independent of dosage and pharmacological agents and duration of the therapy.
  • The dimension of the lesion and age at initiation of treatment are the most important factors affecting the response to treatment.

  • [Title] Role of Propranolol in the therapeutic strategy of infantile laryngotracheal hemangioma.
  • There are recent reports of effective treatment of cutaneous hemangiomas with Propranolol.
  • The current study aims to assess efficacy of systemic Propranolol for subglottic hemangiomas and to discuss its place among the other available therapies.
  • We report 2 infants with subglottic hemangiomas, which were resistant to other established medical treatments.
  • One infant presented with PHACES association, the other with widespread cutaneous congenital hemangiomas.
  • Both patients' subglottic hemangiomas responded dramatically to systemic Propranolol.
  • No side effects of the therapy occurred, and a safety protocol previously designed for Propranolol prescribed for other indications was applied to our patients.
  • Propranolol appears to be an effective treatment for subglottic hemangiomas and should now be used as a first-line treatment in subglottic hemangiomas when intervention is required.

  • [Title] Benign cutaneous vascular tumors of infancy: when to worry, what to do.
  • OBJECTIVES: To discuss the current knowledge regarding complicated hemangiomas (cervicofacial, periorbital, lumbosacral, and parotid), including the associated syndromes of diffuse neonatal hemangiomatosis and PHACES (posterior fossa malformations, most commonly of the Dandy-Walker variant; hemangiomas [especially large, plaquelike, facial lesions]; arterial anomalies; cardiac anomalies and coarctation of the aorta; eye abnormalities; and sternal cleft and/or supraumbilical raphe).
  • To discuss 2 newly recognized entities that may be a source of diagnostic confusion with the common hemangioma, the kaposiform hemangioendothelioma and tufted angioma.
  • To discuss the risks and benefits of current treatment options, including the use of systemic corticosteroids and interferon in necessary situations.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The common hemangioma, kaposiform hemangioendothelioma, and tufted angioma, though benign histologically, may cause serious consequences for children.
  • Dermatologists should also be aware of available treatment options, including the use of systemic chemotherapy in life-threatening situations.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The cutaneous hemangiomas of infancy or infantile hemangiomas are the most common benign tumor of childhood.
  • They were formerly known as strawberry hemangiomas in reason of its typical appearance although uncommon morphologic variations can be found.
  • Usually hemangiomas are harmless growths that are the result of proliferation of endothelial cells during early childhood.
  • Occasionally, infantile hemangiomas suffer dramatic overgrowth causing esthetical damages, as well compromises to vital structures that requires prompt intervention.
  • Propranolol, a beta-adrenergic receptor antagonist that was invented by Sir James Black in 1960s, appears to be an effective treatment for infantile hemangiomas and should now be used as a first-line treatment in hemangiomas when intervention is required.
  • Keloids (that resembles crab claws) and hypertrophic scars are fibrous tissue outgrowths that result from a derailment in the normal wound-healing process.
  • Systemic or intralesional propranolol may play a role in the amelioration of keloids and hypertrophic scars due to their potential to induce vasoconstriction of over proliferating tissues, triggering apoptosis of endothelial cells and also to their effect as modulator of inflammatory process during wound healing.

  • Four cutaneous angiomas were noted.
  • Instrumental examinations revealed congestive heart failure and multiple focal lesions in the liver with typical features of hemangiomas.
  • The therapy with subcutaneous interferon-alfa-2a (IFN-alpha) was administered for 12 months with progressive regression of cutaneous hemangiomas, liver lesions, and cardiological alterations.
  • IFN-alpha therapy was effective without any significant adverse effects.
