Intraosseous venous malformation of the craniofacial region: diagnosis and management

We report eight cases of intraosseous venous malformation that were inappropriately labelled as haemangioma by clinicians, pathologists, and radiologists. We highlight tailored management, and describe the clinical features, results of investigations to aid accurate designation (histological and immunohistochemical, including GLUT1 staining and cross-sectional imaging), and outcomes.

Infantile hemangiomas arising in the palate are rare. The authors describe a case of ulcerated infantile hemangioma of the hard palate with feeding difficulty. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of immunohistochemically diagnosed palatal infantile hemangioma successfully treated using oral propranolol.

Hemangiomas are benign vascular lesions characterized by endothelial vascular proliferation and may demonstrate aggressive clinical features. Intraosseous hemangiomas are uncommon and the maxillary location rare, with few cases described in the literature. The treatment of these lesions varies, however they have a better prognosis when a surgical treatment through resection is performed. The aim of this study is to report a case of right maxillary cavernous intraosseous hemangioma treated by surgical resection with previous embolization. The diagnosis was made through incisional biopsy and immunohistochemical examination. ...

Hemangiomas are relatively rare tumors representing approximately 0.4% of all the salivary gland tumors and occur predominantly in the parotid. Most of the hemangiomas appear during the first year of life; however, are uncommon in adults. Moreover, the rich fat hemangiomas in the parotid are extremely rare. Magnetic resonance imaging is the most important radiologic methods for the diagnosis of the disease as its high resolution of soft tissue which helps to show the relationship with the adjacent structures.

Pseudomyogenic hemangioendothelioma is a vascular neoplasm that presents a borderline biological behavior, intermediate between entirely benign hemangiomas and highly malignant angiosarcomas. Up to date, only 1 case of this entity has been reported in the oral cavity.

Conclusions: Precision, personalized oculofacial surgery is the next wave in tailoring surgical care to the individual patient. Customizable implants are manufactured to specifically mold to an individual patient’s unique bony architecture, which can lead to superior outcomes in reconstructing orbital and craniofacial bony defects. This technique is particularly useful in patients with prior unsuccessful repair.

The authors report a rare case of intraosseous hemangioma of the mandible in a 14-year-old male. Surgical intervention with embolization is as important as histological and radiological examination to reduce the bleeding complication. Magnetic resonance angiography is paramount of importance in these lesions to detect the supplier arteries.

Conclusion: Low dose propranolol and topical Timolol is been safe and easy to use for surgeons who may not be regular prescribers or unfamiliar with treating children with IHs with beta-blocker therapy. In patient monitoring is unnecessary and parents can be taught easily to recognise side effects. Treating children from the start builds a trusting relationship with the family before the child requesting cosmetic revision of the fibro-fatty remnant.
