Propranolol in the Treatment of Infantile HaemangiomasPropranolol in the Treatment of Infantile Haemangiomas
This large cohort study assesses the safety and efficacy of oral propranolol for treatment of infantile hemangioma, analyzing data from 39 European centers. The British Journal of Dermatology
We report 3 cases of children with lumbosacral and perineal hemangiomas with magnetic resonance image abnormalities and we review the literature to find out the type and timing of tests that should be performed to complete the study in these patients. Ultrasound is typically requested as young as possible, as this imaging technique is not possible 11 the posterior spinal elements have ossified. MRI is the gold standard for diagnosing occult spinal dysraphism. According to the literature, the mean age for MRI screening should be around 6 months, when the fat formation in the filum terminale is expanded. In our opinion,...
ConclusionsFeatures including a decrease in cyst size, a progressive centrifugal enhancing pattern on dynamic contrast-enhanced CT or MRI, a hypointense rim with central hyperintensity on T2-weighted MRI, and cyst wall calcification may indicate a hemorrhagic hepatic cyst.

We present a clinical case report of a young woman, affected by aggressive L5 hemangioma causing a spinal canal stenosis with associated sciatalgic symptoms. We performed a review of the current literature on the treatment options, giving the rationale of our treatment choice (mass embolization and radiation therapy with protons).

CT angiography (CTA) can be used for planning procedural and operative therapies for neonatal vascular lesions, such as congenital hemangiomas (CH), that are too morbid for medical therapy. Neonatal anatomy can be displayed within a small enough field-of-view that the nominal resolution of a modern CT scanner can be realized with a standard 512 × 512 storage matrix, yielding isometric ultrahigh resolution data and allowing for microvascular volume visualization. This case report details the creation and use of microvascular volume visualizations of CTA data during pre-procedural planning for treatment of this pathological entity.
We report the case of a patient in whom glomeruloid hemangiomas marked the recurrence of POEMS syndrome, occurring before the systemic symptoms.
Pediatric dermatology, a board-certified subspecialty, covers a wide range of conditions, with the most common being bacterial, viral, and fungal infections; atopic dermatitis; and hemangiomas.
Publication date: Available online 14 January 2019Source: Best Practice &Research Clinical Obstetrics &GynaecologyAuthor(s): Sophie Masmejan, David Baud, Greg Ryan, Tim Van MieghemAbstractIn this review article, we discuss the most common fetal tumors, their prenatal management and outcomes. Overall, the most important outcome predictors are tumor histology, size, vascularity and location. Very large lesions, lesions causing cardiac failure and hydrops and lesions obstructing the fetal airway have the poorest outcome as they may cause fetal death or complications at the time of delivery. Fetal therapy has been deve...
Conclusion: Primary meningeal melanocytoma of the brain is a rare but benign tumor; the association between meningeal melanocytoma and nevus of Ota is also rare and possibly explained by their common embryonic origin from neural crest cells. There are six cases reported so far in literature including our case for meningeal melanocytoma associated with nevus of Ota. PMID: 30613434 [PubMed]
