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]

Cutaneous vertebral medullary angiomatosis, also known as Cobb syndrome, is a rare segmental neurocutaneous syndrome. This syndrome is considered to be a non-hereditary congenital disease that is usually associated with arteriovenous malformations in the skin and spine. The clinical manifestations are complex because the lesions can involve the spine, spinal cord, skin, and even the viscera. Here, we present the case of a 10-year-old girl who was admitted to hospital due to headache with two episodes of convulsions. Previous examination at another hospital found no evidence of any abnormalities on either cranial or intracr...
Noor Nunez, one, from Kuwait, was born with a hemangioma, a benign tumor that forms in infants, that took up a large part of her face. It removed via surgery in New York on July 24.
The cavernous hemangioma of mediastinum (CHM) is a rare benign lesion caused by congenital vascular dysplasia. However, its incidence is extremely low, and patients often lack relevant clinical symptoms. So we...
Distinguishing airway vascular tumors from malformations can be challenging. Failure to treat a suspected airway hemangioma with a beta ‐blocker and systemic corticosteroid should raise suspicion of a possible airway malformation.

To assess the practicality of 3-D power Doppler angiography (3-D-CPA) for local drug perfusion dosage guidance of refractory infantile hemangioma (IH) treatment, 47 cases (48 lesions) of refractory IH were selected for local bleomycin infusion (once a month). Ultrasound was performed before treatment and 1 and 2 months after the first treatment. The 3-D volume (V) change of infantile hemangiomas and the ratio of bleomycin injection to 3-D V before treatment were calculated, and statistical analysis was performed.
ConclusionsAtypical hemangiomas are uncommon lesions. The cases in our population did not show aggressive behavior. A more appropriate designation for these lesions may be lipid-poor hemangioma, to distinguish them from aggressive hemangiomas.
