Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia and Kimura disease overlap, with evidence of diffuse visceral involvement.

J Cutan Pathol 2018 Oct 25. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Dartmouth Geisel School of Medicine, Hanover, New Hampshire.

A relationship between Kimura disease (KD) and angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE) has been debated. Given substantial clinical and histological overlap, these entities were once considered to represent a disease spectrum; however, they are now widely considered to be nosologically distinct. A diagnosis of either condition is further complicated by resemblance to various malignancies, which must be carefully excluded. Read More

FOSB immunoreactivity in endothelia of epithelioid hemangioma (angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia).

J Cutan Pathol 2018 Jun 6;45(6):395-402. Epub 2018 Apr 6.

Dermatopathologie Friedrichshafen, Friedrichshafen, Germany.

Background: Accurate distinction of epithelioid hemangioma (EH) from its malignant mimics is paramount but remains challenging due to its wide morphological spectrum and lack of objective molecular markers. FOSB oncogenic activation was recently identified as a key event in endothelial proliferation. We sought to investigate the FOSB staining pattern in EH with angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (EH-AHLE) morphology and to evaluate its value in differential diagnosis of epithelioid vascular tumors.

Immunoreactivity of Wilms tumor 1 (WT1) as an additional evidence supporting hemangiomatous rather than inflammatory origin in the etiopathogenesis of angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia.

Dermatol Pract Concept 2018 Jan 31;8(1):28-32. Epub 2018 Jan 31.

Department of Dermatology Acibadem University School of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background: Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE) is a rare vascular proliferative disorder mainly located in the periauricular region. The etiopathogenesis of ALHE is unknown, and it is still controversial as to whether the entity represents a benign vascular neoplasm or an inflammatory process.

Aim: Recently, the intracytoplasmic staining pattern of Wilms tumor 1 (WT1) on immunohistochemistry has highlighted true vascular neoplasms, such as microvenular hemangioma, tufted angioma, and spindle cell hemangioma, which has made it helpful to distinguish ALHE from vascular malformations, as there is a negative staining pattern in the other entities.

Multiple Eruptive Epithelioid Hemangiomas: A Subset of Cutaneous Cellular Epithelioid Hemangioma With Expression of FOS-B.

Am J Surg Pathol 2019 Jan;43(1):26-34

Dermatopathology Department, Dermatopathologie Friedrichshafen, Friedrichshafen, Germany.

There is a wide clinicopathologic spectrum of vascular proliferations characterized by the presence of epithelioid endothelial cells, comprising epithelioid hemangioma (EH)-pseudomyogenic (epithelioid sarcoma-like) hemangioendothelioma (PM-HAE), epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, and epithelioid angiosarcoma. Immunohistochemical FOS-B expression as well as FOS-B rearrangement (fluorescent in situ hybridization [FISH]) have recently been described as diagnostically relevant underpinnings of EH (restricted to osseous lesions) and PM-HAE. The aim of this study was to clinicopathologically characterize and to elucidate FOS-B expression in patients with eruptive lesions of the cellular variant of cutaneous EH. Read More
