Photochem. Photobiol. Sci., 2019, Accepted Manuscript DOI: 10.1039/C9PP00079H, PaperMarkus Zutt There are many vascular anomalies which are often a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. They are classified in vascular tumors (e.g. infantile hemangioma) or vascular malformations (e.g. port-wine-stain). Moreover there are...

[Infantile haemangioma: an update]. Hautarzt. 2019 May 17;: Authors: Reimer A, Ott H Abstract Infantile haemangioma (IH) are the most frequent skin tumors in childhood. The diagnosis is usually established from the clinical picture and typical course of growth. Sectional imaging procedures are indicated in segmental, especially facial haemangiomas. The vast majority of IH are uncomplicated and do not require any treatment. In complicated IH, treatment should be initiated as soon as possible in order to avoid permanent damage. Propranolol is the treatment of choice for complicated IH. PMID: 311...

Authors: Johnson S, Niranjan A, Kano H, Lunsford LD Abstract Leksell stereotactic radiosurgery has proven to be effective for less common tumors encountered in the brain, including hemangiomas of the orbit or cavernous sinus, recurrent hemangiopericytomas, and both sporadic hemangioblastomas as well as those encountered in the context of von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease. While all three tumors are responsive to single-session radiosurgery, hemangiomas and hemangiopericytomas are the most likely to demonstrate tumor regression. Hemangiopericytomas that recur after initial resection can be lower grade or anaplastic an...

We present a rare case of bilateral renal and adrenal anastomosing hemangioma found incidentally on renal biopsy. Patient is a 39 year-old African American male on hemodialysis with a history of end-stage renal disease secondary to lupus who presented with acute pericarditis and worsening renal insufficiency.

CONCLUSION: Our results present a model for renin-induced increased proliferation of IH cells through PRR acting via the wnt signaling pathway, which may account for accumulation of cells in IH during the proliferation. PMID: 31091531 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

SUMMARY: While infantile hemangiomas are very common, congenital hemangiomas are rare and less understood. Congenital hemangiomas are present at birth. They fall into 2 major categories: rapidly involuting congenital hemangioma and noninvoluting congenital hemangioma. Noninvoluting congenital hemangioma is the rarer of the 2 entities. If not recognized and treated appropriately, noninvoluting congenital hemangioma can lead to considerable morbidity. There is a paucity of literature regarding noninvoluting congenital hemangiomas. In this article, we will outline our experience with this condition, focusing on clinical and a...

We report a successful anaesthetic management of an adult patient with Maffucci syndrome scheduled for surgical excision of parathyroid adenoma, who had numerous enchondromas, haemangiomas, and skeletal deformities involving different parts of the body and posing significant challenge during positioning, securing intravenous access, and insertion of endotracheal tube. Awareness about this syndrome is of paramount importance because similar patients may be encountered with increasing frequency for incidental or corrective surgeries.

AbstractWe determined the prevalence of incidental extracardiac findings (IEF) at Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) potentially related to anemia and hypoxia in age- and sex-matched populations (N = 318) with thalassemia major (TM) and thalassemia intermedia (TI) enrolled in the Myocardial Iron Overload in Thalassemia network. Overall, IEFs were detected in 33.3% and 25.8% of patients with TI and TM, respectively (P = 0.114). TI and TM patients had elevated but comparable prevalence of renal, splenic and liver cysts, and vertebral hemangiomas while TI patients had a significant higher frequency o...

In the past few blogs, I've been discussing the recent publication of my book,Evolution ’s Clinical Guidebook: Translating Ancient Genes Into Precision Medicine. The premise of this book is that modern medicine is based on an understanding of evolutionary processes. Evolution shows us the relationships between the subdisciplines of medicine that benefit directly from Precision Medicine (i.e., pathology, microbiology, clinical genetics, pharmacology, and bioinformatics). In Evolution's Clinical Guidebook, all of these diverse fields are brought together, under the subject of evolution. To illustrate, I have listed bel...
