We report the response of a symptomatic CCH to photodynamic therapy (PDT). A 70-year-old male presented with blurred vision of the left eye (OS). Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/60 right eye and 20/160 OS. Biomicroscopy revealed bilateral cataracts. Diagnosis of CCH was made fundoscopically for OS and confirmed with optical coherence tomography (OCT). One session of PDT with individualized parameters was administered. After 2 months, anatomical improvement was evidenced with OCT and BCVA was 20/60. After cataract surgery, his BCVA was of 20/25 and remained stable. PDT showed excellent anatomic and visual results...

Infantile hemangiomas (IHs), otherwise known as infantile capillary hemangiomas, strawberry hemangiomas, or strawberry nevi, are non-malignant vascular tumors that commonly affect children. The natural disease course typically involves growth for up to a year followed by regression without treatment over a period of years, with no cosmetic or functional sequelae. Less commonly, however, IHs can become a threat to vision or even life depending on location and size of the lesion. Additionally, IHs, particularly those involving the face, may be disfiguring and result in lifelong sequelae.

A 6-day-old neonate had a tamponade caused by a basolateral hemangioma of the left ventricle. Partial surgical resection was performed. A congenital lobular capillary hemangioma was diagnosed upon histological examination. The patient re...

Insulin‑like growth factor I promotes adipogenesis in hemangioma stem cells from infantile hemangiomas. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Jan 24;: Authors: Wang F, Li H, Lou Y, Xie J, Cao D, Huang X Abstract Infantile hemangiomas (IH) are the most common infantile neoplasms and are characterized by initial proliferation during infancy and subsequent spontaneous regression within the next 5‑10 years, frequently leaving fibrous fat residues. However, the specific mechanisms underlying the differentiation of hemangioma stem cells (HemSCs) into adipocytes are not clear. The purpose of the present study was to inv...
