Abstract Diffuse cavernous haemangioma is a rare disease of the rectum. It usually presents with a history of rectal bleeding in children and young adults. When conservative methods fail to control bleeding, traditionally resection is recommended. A 50-year-old man presented with per rectal bleeding and was diagnosed with diffuse cavernous haemangioma of the sigmoid and rectum extending up to 40 cm in the left colon through endoscopy, magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography. The diagnosis was confirmed by biopsy. This patient was successful managed conservatively with tranexamic acid as needed, avoiding...

In the past few blogs, I've been discussing the recent publication of my book,Evolution ’s Clinical Guidebook: Translating Ancient Genes Into Precision Medicine. The premise of this book is that modern medicine is based on an understanding of evolutionary processes. Evolution shows us the relationships between the subdisciplines of medicine that benefit directly from Precision Medicine (i.e., pathology, microbiology, clinical genetics, pharmacology, and bioinformatics). In Evolution's Clinical Guidebook, all of these diverse fields are brought together, under the subject of evolution. To illustrate, I have listed bel...

ConclusionsThe present study demonstrates the potential efficacy and difficulties in the use of vasodilators in patients with PVOD/PCH; however, drawing a firm conclusion was difficult because of the lack of randomized controlled trials. Further research is needed to ascertain if vasodilator use is beneficial and safe in patients with PVOD/PCH.

Conclusions: Our findings reassure that malignant transformation of enchodromatosis of the hand is unlikely in the pediatric population. Pathologic fracture is common, but has excellent outcomes. When considering surgery, parents should be counseled about the possibility of phalangeal growth arrest and recurrence of the lesion. Type of Study/Level of Evidence: Level IV—therapeutic.

In this report, a rare case of solitary OAK of the ventral surface of the tongue in a 9-year-old male patient is described. Clinical differential diagnosis included pyogenic granuloma, haemangioma, lymphangioma, haematoma, lesions of melanocytic origin and malignant melanoma. Excisional biopsy was performed followed by a proper histopathological analysis. A definitive diagnosis of solitary angiokeratoma of the tongue was made according to the clinical and histopathological findings. The patient underwent further systemic examinations, and the results were non contributory. Follow up for 12 months after surgical excision, t...

Rationale: Cavernous hemangioma is a congenital venous malformation with the potential to develop in all tissues of the body. However, cavernous hemangioma of the thymus is extremely rare. Patient concerns: The present study describes the case of an asymptomatic, 30-year-old female who presented with a cavernous hemangioma in the thymus during a physical examination. Enhanced computed tomography of the chest revealed a 2.3 × 1.7 × 1.3 cm mass in the thymus. Diagnoses: Histopathological examination revealed that the tumor exhibited the typical histological findings of a cavernous hemangioma. I...

Hemangiomas are benign tumors originating from the skin, mucosa, muscle, gland, and vascular tissue in the bone. Although it is common in the head and neck region, it is rarely seen in the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses. Histologically capillary, cavernous, and mixed types are present, the most common is cavernous-type hemangioma. Cavernous hemangiomas in the nasal cavity, generally originated from the lateral nasal wall, cause symptoms as nasal obstruction and epistaxis. In the author's patient, cavernous hemangioma was originated from the nasal septum, where rarely seen. The author wanted to discuss this rare disease...

AbstractRationale:Blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome (BRBNS) is a rare disease characterized by multiple venous malformations. The gastrointestinal bleeding and secondary iron deficiency anemia are the most common complications. There are currently no effective treatments for BRBNS. Here, we report a case of successful treatment with a small dose of sirolimus of a BRBN patient with a de novo gene mutation.Patient concerns:A 12-year-old female was admitted to our hospital with multiple hemangiomas for 12 years. The patient often displayed melena; she recently received transfusion of 2 units of red blood cells once every 2 week...
