Basal cell carcinoma arising within a longstanding hemangioma.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2022 23;35(1):76-77. Epub 2021 Aug 23.

Department of Dermatology, Texas Tech Health Sciences Center, Lubbock, Texas.

Basal cell carcinomas have been reported to arise within several different tumors. Without careful attention to detail, basal cell carcinomas may go unnoticed when presenting within or directly adjacent to another distinct tumor. The increased use and accessibility of dermoscopy has allowed dermatologists to detect skin cancers that might otherwise be undetected by the naked eye. Read More

Treatment of superficial benign vascular tumors by high intensity focused ultrasound: Observations in two illustrative cases.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2021 Dec 17. Epub 2021 Dec 17.

TOOsonix A/S, Hoersholm, Denmark.

Background: Existing therapeutic methods for reduction or removal of superficial vascular malformations and tumors have high risks of scarring and other complications that result in aesthetic appearance less favorable than the baseline. Patients are often cautioned against intervention, which can lead to psychosocial problems and low self-esteem. Improved treatment modalities are therefore relevant from both medical and aesthetic perspectives. Read More

Pineal Region Hemangioblastoma Resection Through Paramedian Supracerebellar Approach: 2-Dimensional Operative Video.

Oper Neurosurg (Hagerstown) 2021 06;21(1):E34-E35

Department of Neurosurgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Pineal region tumors remain challenging lesions to safely resect because of their central location.1 Patients frequently present with symptoms associated with hydrocephalus and brainstem compression.2 Local anatomy, primarily the tentorium angle and venous anatomy, plays a central role in the selection of the approach.

A case of COVID-19 with papulovesicular rash that progressed to retiform purpura, accompanied by cherry angiomas.

Sao Paulo Med J 2021 Mar-Apr;139(2):186-189

MD, PhD. Otolaryngologist, Kolan International Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Context: Various skin manifestations have been reported in coronavirus disease. It may be difficult to determine the etiology of these lesions in view of the increased frequency of handwashing during the pandemic, along with occurrences of irritant contact dermatitis and allergic contact dermatitis due to disinfectant use; usage of herbal medicine and supplements to strengthen the immune system; and urticarial or maculopapular drug eruptions due to COVID-19 treatment. The variety of associated skin manifestations seen with COVID-19 makes it challenging to identify virus-specific skin manifestations. Read More

High frequency of GNA14, GNAQ, and GNA11 mutations in cherry hemangioma: a histopathological and molecular study of 85 cases indicating GNA14 as the most commonly mutated gene in vascular neoplasms.

Mod Pathol 2019 11 12;32(11):1657-1665. Epub 2019 Jun 12.

Graduate Institute of Pathology, National Taiwan University College of Medicine, Taipei, Taiwan.

Cherry hemangioma is the most common hemangioma in adult life. Neoplastic and non-neoplastic theories had both been proposed for its pathogenesis, but its nature is still poorly understood. We noted a significant subset of anastomosing hemangiomas and congenital hemangiomas harbored a population of small capillaries surrounded by a perivascular hyaline layer, reminiscent of the vessels seen in cherry hemangioma.

Campbell de Morgan Spots (Cherry Angiomas) Show Endothelial Proliferation.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Dec;40(12):894-898

Department of Anatomic Pathology, Universitary Hospital of La Princesa, Madrid, Spain.

Campbell de Morgan spots (also known as adult hemangiomas, cherry angiomas, or senile angiomas) show clinical and histopathological features that make them distinct. Despite this, they are not included as benign vascular tumors in the current classification by the International Society for Vascular Anomalies (ISSVA). In the current study, we investigated the proliferation rate (Ki67) of the endothelia of 23 cases of Campbell de Morgan spots, as well as the immunoexpression of Wilms tumor protein 1 (WT1) by these vascular anomalies.
