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.

High prevalence of specific KIR types in patients with HHV-8 positive cutaneous vascular lesions: a possible predisposing factor?

Arch Dermatol Res 2016 Jul 8;308(5):373-7. Epub 2016 Apr 8.

Section of Microbiology and Medical Genetics, Department of Medical Sciences, University of Ferrara, Ferrara, Italy.

Human herpesvirus 8 (HHV8) has been hypothesized to be a potential cofactor for the development of diverse cutaneous vascular proliferative lesions, including eruptive cherry angiomas. Recent reports evidenced the influence of killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptor (KIR) gene diversity in defining the susceptibility to symptomatic herpesvirus infections. In this study, skin samples from vascular lesions and healthy controls were characterized simultaneously for the presence of HHV8 and for the KIR genotype, focusing upon the presence of the KIR2DL2/DS2 and KIR2DL3 genes, which have been associated to herpesvirus susceptibility.

G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2009 Oct;144(5):557-72

Laser Surgery and Cosmetic Dermatology Centers, Bryn Mawr, PA, USA.

The concept of selective photothermolysis simply states that if one heats target tissue with a laser that is selectively absorbed by that tissue, heat should last sufficiently enough to cause damage to the target tissue, but not so long for the heat to spread to the surrounding tissue. The pulsed-dye laser (PDL) was the first laser to utilize the concept of selective photothermolysis to treat dermatologic conditions. The first application of this concept was directed at treating port-wine stain birthmarks (PWSs). Read More

Cherry Angiomas on the Scalp.

Case Rep Dermatol 2009 Nov 11;1(1):82-86. Epub 2009 Nov 11.

Department of Dermatology, Yonsei University Wonju College of Medicine, Wonju, Korea.

Cherry angiomas are a common cutaneous vascular proliferation which manifests as single or multiple spots and occurs predominantly on the upper trunk and arms. They typically appear as round-to-oval, bright, red, dome-shaped papules and pinpoint macules measuring up to several millimeters in diameter. The histopathologic findings of a cherry angioma are consistent with a true capillary hemangioma, which is formed by numerous, newly developed capillaries with narrow lumens and prominent endothelial cells arranged in a lobular fashion in the papillary dermis.

Papillary hemangiomas and glomeruloid hemangiomas are distinct clinicopathological entities.

Int J Surg Pathol 2010 Feb 19;18(1):48-54. Epub 2008 Sep 19.

Department of Pathology, University Medical Centre Groningen, University of Groningen, Groningen, Netherlands.

The author reviews and compares the clinicopathological features of papillary hemangiomas and glomeruloid hemangiomas, 2 rare, cutaneous intravascular capillary-type vascular lesions with overlapping morphological details. Immunostaining for collagen IV highlighted discriminating features in these lesions. Thin basement membranes and glomeruloid architecture are typical of glomeruloid hemangiomas, whereas papillae with thick mantles of a basement membrane- like matrix enveloping pericytes are prominent in papillary hemangiomas.

A side-by-side prospective study of intense pulsed light and Nd:YAG laser treatment for vascular lesions.

Ann Plast Surg 2006 Feb;56(2):164-70

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Rambam Medical Center, Faculty of Medicine, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel.

Recently, lasers and light systems are used more for the treatment of vascular lesions due to their noninvasiveness, ease of use, and short recovery time. This side-by-side prospective study compares results, satisfaction, and complications after intense pulsed light (IPL) and Nd:Yag laser treatment of small vascular lesions. Twenty-five patients with telangiectases, leg veins, or cherry angiomas underwent treatment of the same category of lesion in the same area. Read More

Intravascular large B-cell lymphoma colonizing cutaneous hemangiomas.

Dermatology 2004 ;209(2):132-4

Department of Dermatology, University of Graz Medical School, Graz, Austria.

Intravascular large B-cell lymphoma is a malignant neoplasm characterized by the proliferation of large B cells (rarely of T lymphocytes) confined within the blood vessels. Although the disease can be limited to the skin, involvement of other organs is common. We report a case of intravascular large B-cell lymphoma colonizing the vessels of preexisting cutaneous cherry hemangiomas. Read More

Authors:
G Dawn G Gupta

Clin Exp Dermatol 2003 Nov;28(6):581-3

Department of Dermatology, Monklands Hospital, Airdrie, UK.

Patients with vascular spiders and angiomas, especially on exposed sites, demonstrate considerable psychological morbidity and therefore request treatment. Traditionally, electrosurgical modalities have been used to treat such lesions, but more recently lasers have been introduced. This open study assesses the efficacy of these two treatment modalities, scoring patients' preference and psychological morbidity before and after treatment. Read More

Center for Vascular and Interventional Radiology, St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, Department of Radiology, 2213 Cherry Street, Toledo, OH 43608, USA.

Percutaneous vertebroplasty, a minimally invasive interventional radiological procedure, has recently been used effectively for the treatment of symptomatic vertebral body compression fractures. Primary indications for vertebroplasty include osteoporotic compression fracture, osteolytic vertebral metastasis and myeloma, and vertebral hemangioma. We present a case and extend the indication of percutaneous vertebroplasty in a patient with a vertebral body compression fracture secondary to osteogenesis imperfecta. Read More
