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

We describe a 37-year old male, who presented with Wyburn–Mason syndrome presenting with bilateral but asymmetrical retinal hemangioma. The eye with advanced grade of hemangioma was complicated with exudation, intraretinal fluid, neurosensory detachment, and reduced vision. He was treated with one intravitreal injection of bevacizumab, after which both the intraretinal fluid and neurosensory detachment resolved. His vision improved and was maintained till 1 year of follow-up.

The diagnoses were fibroma (43.6%), mucous cyst (14.2%), papilloma (11.8%), hemangioma (7.8%), granuloma (6.4%), lipoma (1.4%), schwannoma (1.0%), ectopic tonsil (0.7%), and other (13.2%). Recurrence was noted in two patients (0.7%). Twenty-two patients (7.4%) de...
We report a case of pyogenic granuloma of the right index finger in a 46-year-old gentleman who presented with painless swelling of the right index finger after a trivial injury. Wedge biopsy confirmed the diagnosis and excision of the granuloma measuring 3 cm × 3 cm × 2 cm was done with curettage and electrocautery over the base of granuloma. The wound subsequently healed well with good functional and aesthetic outcome. PMID: 30428790 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusions: Propranolol could inhibit CoCl2-induced hypoxic proliferation of HUVECs through inducing apoptosis and cell cycle arrest.Pharmacology 2019;103:61 –67
CONCLUSIONS: Fundus color photography, fundus fluorescein angiography, and OCT can aid in acquiring a better understanding of the structural features of cavernous hemangioma and its relationship with retinal vessels. PMID: 30433829 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
