    PEDF/VEGF ratio plays a crucial role in the spontaneous regression of infant hemangioma and the therapeutic effect of propranolol.
    Cancer Sci 2018 Apr 17. Epub 2018 Apr 17.
    Program of Molecular Medicine Affiliated Guangzhou Women and Children's Hospital, Zhongshan School of Medicine Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou, 510080, China.
    Infantile hemangioma (IH) is a benign tumor that is formed by aberrant angiogenesis and that undergoes spontaneous regression over time. Propranolol, the first-line therapy for IH, inhibits angiogenesis by downregulating the activation of the VEGF pathway, which is hyperactivated in IH. However, this treatment is reportedly ineffective for 10% of tumors, and 19% of patients relapse after propranolol treatment. Read More

    Nonepithelial Tumors and Tumor-like Lesions of the Skin and Subcutis in Children.
    Pediatr Dev Pathol 2018 Mar-Apr;21(2):150-207
    3 Department of Pathology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia.
    This overview of mesenchymal tumors presenting in the skin and/or subcutis in children brings together the range of neoplasms and hamartomas which are seen in this age-group. It is not surprising from the perspective of the pediatric or general surgical pathologist that vascular anomalies, including true neoplasms and vascular malformations, are the common phenotypic category. Since there is considerable morphologic overlap among these lesions, clinicopathologic correlation may be more important than for many of the other mesenchymal tumors. Read More
