Two attempts of surgical treatment were taken three months before radiotherapy. Excessive bleeding did not allow to remove the tumour or to take samples for histopathological examination. Diagnosis was put on the basis of radiological...

A 73-year-old man underwent a 68Ga-PSMA-HBED-CC 11 PET/CT for evaluation of rising PSA in the context of previous radical retropubic prostatectomy and salvage radiotherapy for prostatic adenocarcinoma. There was no definite PSMA avid recurrence in the prostatic bed. Intense PSMA avid uptake was seen in the anterior aspect of the spleen. Further characterization with multiplanar multisequence pre- and post-IV contrast MRI of the upper abdomen with arterial, portal venous, and delayed phase acquisitions revealed a lesion with appearances consistent with a splenic hemangioma.

Abstract Infantile hemangiomas (IH) are the most common vascular tumor of infancy1 . Most hemangiomas follow a predictable pattern with proliferation followed by slow involution and many do not require medical or surgical intervention. However, some hemangiomas cause complications, including disfigurement, visual obstruction and/or functional impairment, which require therapeutic intervention.2 Since the discovery of beta blockers as effective topical and oral therapy for IH, hemangioma specialists suggest early therapy and referral for IH to prevent permanent sequalae3 . Yet, little is known about utilization pat...

Sclerosing pneumocytoma (sclerosing hemangioma, SP) is a rare benign tumor of the lung that contains two cell types, stromal round cells and cuboidal surface cells. It is a well-circumscribed lung parenchymal lesion that is usually diagnosed in individuals aged 50 years and older, but also has been observed in younger individuals including adolescents. SP is more common in women, with a male:female ratio of 1:5. Although the genomic profile of SP is largely unknown, the AKT1 (AKT serine/threonine kinase 1) E17K mutation has been reported with high frequency in SP.

ConclusionsIHCT lesions are phenotypically similar to AVMs and contain the same somaticMAP2K1 orKRAS mutations, suggesting that IHCT is on the AVM spectrum. We propose calling this lesion “intramuscular fast-flow vascular anomaly.”
