Conclusion: Delayed spontaneous suprachoroidal hemorrhage can present as a choroidal mass. Multimodal imaging helps to differentiate it from other sight-threatening and life-threatening ocular diseases. PMID: 32095214 [PubMed]

We describe a comprehensive, multidisciplinary treatment approach for lumbar vertebral hemangiomas (VHs) with spinal stenosis and radiculopathy. A 59-year-old female presented with 1 year of pain predominantly in the lower back, with pain in the left buttock and proximal left anterior thigh as well and magnetic resonance imaging of the lumbar spine demonstrated lumbar scoliosis and an L3 vertebral lesion suspicious for hemangioma. A computed tomography guided biopsy was done, which supported the diagnosis. Definitive treatment entailed preoperative angiography and embolization, followed by L3 laminectomy, right L3 pedicle ...

We describe the criteria that we performed to diagnose the left forearm FAVA in this patient, based on the history; the magnetic resonance imaging, which demonstrated muscle replaced by heterogeneous soft tissue, intramuscular phlebolit, and dilated vessels; and histological images that showed a vascular proliferation associated with adipocytes and dense fibrous tissue replacing and infiltrating the skeletal muscle. En bloc resection of the mass was performed successfully, and it gave excellent results with recovery of limitation and improvement of pain and swelling that were maintained at 2-year follow-up. Surgery is a re...

Study Design. Clinical case series. Objective. The aim of this study was to describe the treatment of aggressive vertebral hemangiomas (VHs) with neurological deficit treated with total en bloc spondylectomy (TES) in a single institute. Summary of Background Data. Despite increasing utilization of surgery to treat aggressive VHs, owing to the rarity, the diagnosis and treatment protocols of aggressive VHs are still questionable and disputable. Methods. All patients with Enneking stage 3 aggressive thoracic or lumbar VHs with neurological deficit and treated with TES from January 2005 to January 2013 were include...

Conclusion. For patients with neurologic deficits from spinal cord or nerve root compression, surgery provides improvement in symptoms. Recurrence of VH and symptoms refractory to surgery can be further reduced by adjuvant therapies such as embolization, kyphoplasty, and radiation with some unique risks to each therapy. Level of Evidence: 2

We report a case of compressive myelopathy and compression fracture of aggressive vertebral hemangioma after parturition in a 35-year-old woman. The patient complained unable to walk and experienced intense pain in the back. Diagnosis: Based on the clinical features and imaging studies, the patient underwent a T4–T6 laminectomy. Histopathology consistent with vertebral hemangioma. Interventions: The patient underwent laminectomy for decompression. After subperiosteal dissection of the paraspinal muscles and exposure of the laminae, there was no involvement of the lamina by the tumor. The epidural tumor was remo...

Conclusions: EH of multiple bones responded favorably to intravenous Zometa with improvement of bone metabolic markers. After 1 year on follow-up, the patient was doing well with no significant pain. We suggest that bisphosphonates should be considered in the treatment of multifocal osteolytic EH of bone.

Rationale: Primary Extranodal Natural Killer/T-Cell Nasal-Type Lymphoma (ENKTCL) of spine is rarely reported. This case study presents a rare case of ENKTCL originating from the sixth thoracic vertebra. Patient concerns: Here, we present a case of 49-year-old Asian male with chest and back pain. Physical examination revealed the myodynamia of both lower limbs decreased from IV degree to 0 degree, reflexes of both lower limbs and a large area of cutaneous sensation below xiphoid process disappeared in 3 days. Diagnoses: In immunophenotype analysis, CD2, CD3, CD7, and CD68 were positive and CD56 was suspiciously posi...

We present the case of a 68-year-old woman, who complained of abdominal enlargement and abdominal pain in the left part of the abdomen. Imagistic investigations (native and contrast abdominal computed tomography) revealed an inhomogeneous retroperitoneal mass of 210∕182∕200 mm, containing calcifications. Laboratory findings were not relevant, just a slight and non-significant elevation of carcinoembryonic antigen and a slight elevation of C-reactive protein. Diagnosis of cancer of undetermined origin was considered, and surgery was performed. During surgery, a giant encapsulated inhomogeneous tumor of 330 mm, with cyst...
