Recurrent symptomatic vertebral hemangioma during two consecutive pregnancies: Case report and review of the literature.

CONCLUSION: Patients with known vertebral hemangiomas should be closely monitored during pregnancy as increased growth during these pregnancies may result in progressive spinal cord compression. PMID: 28695052 [PubMed - in process]

Discussion Spider telangiectasia or spider angiomas have a central red lesion with radiating dilatation of the distal, end vasculature that resemble arachnid appendages. They are common lesions (up to 38% in one study of children, and 60% in pregnant women), often solitary or

AbstractUmbilical cord anomalies can be related to its morphology (coiling, length and thickness); placental insertion (marginal and velamentous insertion); in utero distortion (knotting, torsion and nuchal cord) vascular abnormalities (single umbilical artery) and primary tumours or masses (haemangioma and teratoma). Some of these conditions may be associated with other foetal abnormalities or aneuploidy. On the other hand, several prenatal complications including intrauterine growth restriction IUGR and stillbirth can be attributed to cord accidents or abnormalities. Early detection and close follow up of umbilical cord ...

CONCLUSION:  Although not clinically approved in obstetrics so far, CEUS is a safe imaging modality which, in addition to B-mode and color Doppler ultrasonography, may be applied during pregnancy for further medical indications and to provide helpful information.

AbstractMelatonin is subcutaneously administered in a single dose of 1.2 μg to 129/Sv mice at days 3, 5, and 7 after birth, and the mice are observed until natural death. In adult males, a decrease in the body weight and a reduction of the contribution of lung lesions detected during postmortal autopsy to mortality are detected. In adult females, an increase in the proportion of mice with impaired estrous cycle at the later stages of life and an acceleration of the mortality associated with uterine hemangioma are observed with the absence of any effect of melatonin on the body weight. Changes in the frequency of detecti...

Discussion Facial nerve palsy has been known for centuries, but in 1821 unilateral facial nerve paralysis was described by Sir Charles Bell. Bell’s palsy (BP) is a unilateral, acute facial paralysis that is clinically diagnosed after other etiologies have been excluded by appropriate history, physical examination and/or laboratory testing or imaging. Symptoms include abnormal movement of facial nerve. It can be associated with changes in facial sensation, hearing, taste or excessive tearing. The right and left sides are equally affected but bilateral BP is rare (0.3%). Paralysis can be complete or incomplete at prese...

ConclusionPESH of capillary variety is a rare cause of acute paraplegia in pregnancy. Preoperative suspicion of this diagnosis is extremely unlikely and regardless of the timing of surgery, such acute paraplegias rarely improve completely. Fetal lung maturity is an important factor determining the surgical priority.

Rationale: Hepatic hemangioma is rarely discovered during the infantile period. Although most of the cases are asymptomatic, some of them may suffer life-threatening situations. In this regard, early detection is mandatory for preventing the ominous consequences that might be culminated from the disease. Patient concerns: A 2-month-14-day-old female infant was found incidentally to have multiple hepatic lesions during a newborn ultrasound screen. She was born smoothly at term after a non-eventful pregnancy course. Physical examination was completely normal and postnatal vital signs were stable. Diagnosis: Infantile...

Conclusion: The analysis does not point to the presence of an active viral infection in vascular anomalies. However, transient earlier viral infections, e.g. during pregnancy, cannot be excluded with this approach.

We report 3 cases of aggressive VH in women who developed progressive neurological deficits during pregnancy among 95 patients treated for aggressive VH in our hospital in the past 15 years. Diagnoses and Interventions: All 3 patients experienced progressive deterioration of neurological function and pain at 13, 28, and 41 weeks’ gestation. On radiological examination, VHs were the suspected radiological diagnoses in 2 patients; 1 patient was preoperatively misdiagnosed with a spinal metastatic tumor. All 3 patients underwent decompression surgery with intraoperative vertebroplasty and/or postoperative radiotherap...
