Neurokirurgisk Afdeling, Odense Universitetshospital.

Capillary malformations - arteriovenous malformation, hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia and Sturge-Weber syndrome - are rare diseases in which cutaneous capillary malformations (CM) may be associated with cerebral vascular malformations. The clinical presentation of each disease is described with focus on how to distinguish them in the clinic and differential diagnoses are listed. This review finds that upon thorough and careful examination of patients, cutaneous CM might be a diagnostic hallmark for underlying disease and therefore a significant clinical observation.

Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation and inherent complications with solitary lung nodule biopsy-literature overview and case report.

Radiol Case Rep 2022 Jul 6;17(7):2353-2361. Epub 2022 May 6.

Department of Radiology, Pham Ngoc Thach University of Medicine, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation, also known as an arteriovenous fistula, is typically a congenital disease caused by structural deficiencies, particularly the lack of capillary wall development, leading to the abnormal dilation of the pulmonary capillaries. The majority of pulmonary arteriovenous malformation cases are associated with Rendu-Osler-Weber syndrome, also known as hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation rarely occurs due to chest trauma. Read More

A New Nonlinear Photothermal Iterative Theory for Port-Wine Stain Detection.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2022 May 5;19(9). Epub 2022 May 5.

Shaanxi Key Laboratory of Ultrasound, School of Physics and Information Technology, Shaanxi Normal University, Xi'an 710062, China.

The development of appropriate photothermal detection of skin diseases to meet complex clinical demands is an urgent challenge for the prevention and therapy of skin cancer. An extensive body of literature has ignored all high-order harmonics above the second order and their influences on low-order harmonics. In this paper, a new iterative numerical method is developed for solving the nonlinear thermal diffusion equation to improve nonlinear photothermal detection for the noninvasive assessment of the thickness of port-wine stain (PWS).

Mapping the PIK3CA-related overgrowth spectrum (PROS) patient and caregiver journey using a patient-centered approach.

Orphanet J Rare Dis 2022 05 7;17(1):189. Epub 2022 May 7.

Interventional Radiology, Nemours Children's Hospital, Orlando, FL, USA.

Background: PROS disorders are driven by somatic, gain-of-function mutations in PIK3CA that result in hyperactivation of the phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI3K) signaling pathway. PROS encompasses a broad spectrum of overlapping phenotypes (including overgrowth and vascular malformations) that vary significantly in their severity; every case is unique, leading to different, complex experiences. Here, we aim to describe the PROS experience from the patients' and caregivers' points of view, from onset to diagnosis to treatment and support. Read More

Capillary malformation-arteriovenous malformation syndrome associated with basilar artery aneurysm.

Pediatr Dermatol 2022 May 3. Epub 2022 May 3.

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Hospital de Braga, Braga, Portugal.

A 23-day-old boy with prenatal diagnosis of basilar artery aneurysm presented with multiple congenital red patches consistent with capillary malformations. Genetic testing confirmed the presence of a heterozygous pathogenic variant of the RASA1 gene, confirming the diagnosis of capillary malformation-arteriovenous malformation (CM-AVM) syndrome. This case illustrates an atypical presentation of the RASA1 associated CM-AVM syndrome, with the intracranial vascular malformation diagnosis preceding the identification of the skin lesions.

Clinical Characteristics of Pediatric Patients with Congenital Erythrocytosis: A Single-Center Study.

Indian J Hematol Blood Transfus 2022 Apr 25;38(2):366-372. Epub 2021 Aug 25.

Division of Pediatric Hematology, Department of Pediatrics, Kocaeli University, Umuttepe, 41380 Kocaeli, Turkey.

Although congenital erythrocytosis (CE), an inherited disorder, impairs pediatric quality of life, physicians often overlook high hemoglobin (Hgb) levels and its symptoms due to lack of knowledge of age-adjusted pediatric Hgb levels and CE's rarity. In a retrospective, single-center study, data from hospital records of pediatric patients diagnosed with CE were evaluated. Twenty-six patients from 25 families (80. Read More

The utility of cerebrospinal fluid-derived cell-free DNA in molecular diagnostics for the -related megalencephaly-capillary malformation (MCAP) syndrome: a case report.

Cold Spring Harb Mol Case Stud 2022 04 28;8(3). Epub 2022 Apr 28.

Center for Integrative Brain Research, Seattle Children's Research Institute, Seattle, Washington 98101, USA.

The megalencephaly-capillary malformation (MCAP) syndrome is an overgrowth disorder caused by mosaic gain-of-function variants in It is characterized by megalencephaly or hemimegalencephaly, vascular malformations, somatic overgrowth, among other features. Epilepsy is commonly associated with MCAP, and a subset of individuals have cortical malformations requiring resective epilepsy surgery. Like other mosaic disorders, establishing a molecular diagnosis is largely achieved by screening lesional tissues (such as brain or skin), with a low diagnostic yield from peripheral tissues (such as blood).

Hyperpolarized Xe Pulmonary MRI and Asymptomatic Atrial Septal Defect.

Chest 2022 Apr;161(4):e199-e202

Division of Cardiology, Department of Medicine, Western University, London, Canada.

In an asymptomatic 19-year-old who regularly underwent cardiopulmonary fitness testing for national lifeguard-accreditation, Xe MRI unexpectedly revealed an abnormally augmented RBC signal and RBC-to-alveolar-capillary-tissue ratio with spatially homogeneous ventilation, tissue barrier, and RBC images. Pulmonary function was normal, but cardiopulmonary follow-up including transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiogram, heart catheterization, and contrast-enhanced cardiac CT imaging led to the diagnosis of a large (20 × 27 mm) secundum atrial septal defect (ASD) with a net right-to-left shunt (Qp:Qs = 0.5) and normal pulmonary pressures.

Department of Ophthalmology, Faculty of Medicine and Graduate School of Medicine, Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan N-15, W-7, Kita-ku, Sapporo 060-8638, Japan.

Purpose: Retinal racemose hemangioma (RRH) is a rare, non-hereditary arteriovenous malformation characterized by the appearance of dilated and tortuous retinal vessels. RRH can develop complications associated with retinal ischemia, such as vitreous hemorrhage, retinal vein occlusion and neovascular glaucoma. Here, we report a case of RRH with retinal hypoperfusion detected by wide-field swept source optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA), which was not unambiguously illustrated by fluorescein angiography (FA).

Neuropilin-1 deficiency in vascular smooth muscle cells is associated with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia arteriovenous malformations.

JCI Insight 2022 May 9;7(9). Epub 2022 May 9.

Vascular and Interventional Radiology Translational laboratory, Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, Department of Radiology.

Patients with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) have arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) with genetic mutations involving the activin-A receptor like type 1 (ACVRL1 or ALK1) and endoglin (ENG). Recent studies have shown that Neuropilin-1 (NRP-1) inhibits ALK1. We investigated the expression of NRP-1 in livers of patients with HHT and found that there was a significant reduction in NRP-1 in perivascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs). Read More
