Spinal epidural capillary hemangioma: A rare case report with a review of literature.
CONCLUSION: The radiological presentation of purely epidural capillary hemangiomas are often similar to those of schwannomas and meningiomas. Surgical confirmation of the pathology, and gross total excision of these lesions is recommended. PMID: 28713627 [PubMed]
A 33-year-old woman was admitted for a 1-year history of repeated hematemesis and melena. Physical examination revealed splenomegaly, hypertrophy of the left lower limb, varicose veins and port-wine stains on the bilateral lower extremities. Computed tomography and endoscopy showed esophageal varices, cavernous transformation of the portal vein, massive splenomegaly with multiple low-density internal nodules and diffuse hemangiomas spread throughout the colon (Fig. 1). The complete blood count indicated a hemoglobin level of 5 g/dL.

Rationale: Cavernous hemangioma is a benign vascular tumor, which very rarely occurs in the lung. When appearing as multiple nodules on chest CT, this tumor can be misdiagnosed as metastatic malignancy. Patient concerns: A 72-year-old woman presented with incidentally found multiple lung nodules on chest radiograph. Diagnoses: Based on information derived from dual-layer spectral CT images, the possibility of slow flow vascular tumor such as cavernous hemangioma was suggested. A pathologic diagnosis of pulmonary cavernous hemangioma was made via video-assisted thoracoscopic biopsy. Interventions: After tissue co...
CONCLUSIONS: Without transcranial approaches requiring temporalis muscle dissection and orbitozygomatic osteotomy, the selection of ETOA or EEA based on a concept of a four-zone model with its epicenter around the optic nerve successfully provides a minimally invasive 360° circumferential access to the entire orbit with acceptable morbidity.

CONCLUSIONS: Tumour resection for primary benign right ventricular tumours is safe and effective, and has a good prognosis. Tricuspid valvuloplasty or tricuspid valve replacement may be necessary for the resection of right ventricular tumours to improve the haemodynamics. Haemangiomas naturally undergo spontaneous regression. PMID: 32969255 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Orbital cavernous hemangioma is the most common primary tumor in the orbit. With the development of histopathology, it has been confirmed that cavernous hemangioma is not a real tumor, but a special type of vascular malformation. Cavernous hemangioma malformation(CVM) is a more appropriate way to name it. At present, surgical resection is the main treatment for CVMs. The prognosis of the surgery mainly depends on the location and the size of the lesion as well as its relationship with the optic nerve. Therefore, effective imaging information is of great importance. This paper analyzes the radiological imaging characteristi...
Conclusion: Retinal cavernous hemangioma can be associated with intralesional calcification (phleboliths).
Conclusion: Intravitreal propranolol showed a therapeutic effect on retinal capillary hemangioma with no short-term adverse effects except a mild transient inflammatory response in a patient with Von Hippel–Lindau.
