Atypical Presentation of PHACE Syndrome: Hidden Facial Hemangioma

PHACE(S) syndrome is a neurocutaneous syndrome with a wide array of presentations. The most known and present trait is facial hemangioma #x3e; 5 cm. The name is an acronym forPosterior fossa malformations, infantileHemangiomas,Arterial anomalies, aorticCoarctation,Eye abnormalities, and middle-line malformations of theSternum. The exact etiopathogenic mechanism of this syndrome is not fully understood, and its treatment depends on detailed and individualized assessment. The aim of this paper is to describe a child with a throat hemangioma, vascular malformations, cognitive delay, and other anomalies to illustrate the neuroimaging found in this syndrome.Pediatr Neurosurg

Authors: Posch H, Erb-Eigner K Abstract Today, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is considered the diagnostic tool of choice for eye and orbital pathologies. In this article, the MR image characteristics of relevant pathologies are illustrated with case-based examples in the context of clinical findings. Vascular pathologies (such as capillary and cavernous hemangioma), inflammatory diseases (such as endocrine orbitopathy), and neoplasms (such as lymphoma, uveal melanoma, retinoblastoma, and ocular/orbital metastasis) are described. Additionally, the role of MRI in the acute clinical setting and in trauma are discus...

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.

Discussion –Peripheral nerve sheath tumors consist of neurofibromas and schwannomas in the benign category&malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) in malignant category.Imaging features and signs that help to identify and characterize a nerve sheath tumor are, distribution of the tumor along a major nerve, an entering or exiting nerve sign, target sign, a fascicular sign and a split-fat sign.-         Distribution of the lesion along the course of the nerve is most important feature. Benign lesions may be located along the cutaneous or deep nerves, however, the...

We report the response of a symptomatic CCH to photodynamic therapy (PDT). A 70-year-old male presented with blurred vision of the left eye (OS). Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/60 right eye and 20/160 OS. Biomicroscopy revealed bilateral cataracts. Diagnosis of CCH was made fundoscopically for OS and confirmed with optical coherence tomography (OCT). One session of PDT with individualized parameters was administered. After 2 months, anatomical improvement was evidenced with OCT and BCVA was 20/60. After cataract surgery, his BCVA was of 20/25 and remained stable. PDT showed excellent anatomic and visual results...

Conclusion: The present study suggests that it is safe to conservatively manage patients with FNH presumed by highly accurate imaging tests. Similar to hepatic hemangiomas, surgery for FNH should be an exception.Dig Dis

Infantile hemangiomas (IHs), otherwise known as infantile capillary hemangiomas, strawberry hemangiomas, or strawberry nevi, are non-malignant vascular tumors that commonly affect children. The natural disease course typically involves growth for up to a year followed by regression without treatment over a period of years, with no cosmetic or functional sequelae. Less commonly, however, IHs can become a threat to vision or even life depending on location and size of the lesion. Additionally, IHs, particularly those involving the face, may be disfiguring and result in lifelong sequelae.

A 6-day-old neonate had a tamponade caused by a basolateral hemangioma of the left ventricle. Partial surgical resection was performed. A congenital lobular capillary hemangioma was diagnosed upon histological examination. The patient re...
