    Reflectance confocal microscopy features of facial angiofibromas.
    Dermatol Pract Concept 2017 Jan 31;7(1):51-54. Epub 2017 Jan 31.
    Dermatology Service, Department of Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, USA.
    Facial angiofibromas are benign tumors presenting as firm, dome-shaped, flesh-colored to pink papules, typically on the nose and adjoining central face. Clinically and dermoscopically they can mimic melanocytic nevi or basal cell carcinomas (BCC). Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a noninvasive imaging tool that is useful in diagnosing melanocytic and non-melanocytic facial lesions. Read More

    Histochemical and immunohistochemical differences between solitary oral fibroma and fibrous papule of the face.

    Avoiding allogenic blood transfusions in endoscopic angiofibroma surgery.
    J Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2016 Apr 11;45:25. Epub 2016 Apr 11.
    Division of Otolaryngology, University of Cape Town, Cape Town, South Africa.
    Background: Surgical approaches for many tumours are often limited by blood loss, exposure and risk to vital anatomical structures. Therefore, the standard of care for certain skull base tumours has become endoscopic transnasal resection. Other surgical disciplines often use cell salvage techniques, but review of the otolaryngology literature revealed very few case reports. Read More

    Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Policlinico di Modena, University of Modena & Reggio Emilia, Italy -
    Tuberous sclerosis complex is an autosomal dominant disorder that can cause nonmalignant hamartomas in any organ. Angiofibromas are the most disturbing marker of the disease because they are conspicuously present on the face. We report the case of a 15-year-old girl affected by tuberous sclerosis, whose facial angiofibromas were satisfactorily treated by a green light vascular laser (532 nm). Read More

    Topical everolimus for facial angiofibromas in the tuberous sclerosis complex. A first case report.
    Pediatr Neurol 2014 Jul 1;51(1):109-13. Epub 2014 Mar 1.
    Hospital Pharmacy, University Hospital Basel, University of Basel, Basel, Switzerland.
    Background: Facial angiofibromas are present in most of the patients with the tuberous sclerosis complex and may cause severe disfiguration of the face. The tumor growth in tuberous sclerosis complex is promoted by the disinhibition of the mammalian target of rapamycin pathway. Thus, the systemic treatment with mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitors such as sirolimus and everolimus has recently been established to treat specific tuberous sclerosis complex-associated lesions.

    Current options for the treatment of facial angiofibromas.
    Actas Dermosifiliogr 2014 Jul-Aug;105(6):558-68. Epub 2013 Mar 21.
    Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital Universitario Reina Sofía, Córdoba, España.
    Facial angiofibromas are hamartomatous growths that are closely associated with tuberous sclerosis complex and, in fact, they constitute one of the main diagnostic criteria for that disease. These lesions composed of blood vessels and fibrous tissue appear on the face at an early age. Since they have important physical and psychological repercussions for patients, several treatment options have been used to remove them or improve their appearance. Read More

    Department of Interventional Neuroradiology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.
    The trigeminocardiac reflex (TCR) is a rare but well-described phenomenon encountered during invasive procedures involving the face, orbit, and cranial base. The reflex is characterized by the abrupt onset of hypotension, bradycardia, asystole, and dysrhythmias. With temporary cessation of the surgical procedure, vital signs typically stabilize without the need for further investigation, though anticholinergic drugs are often used to prevent prolonged hypotension and bradycardia.

    Division of Dermatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Saga University, Saga, Japan.
    The occurrence of multiple fibrofolliculomas or trichodiscomas on the face and neck is clinically characteristic of Birt-Hogg-Dubé (BHD) syndrome, whereas the development of multiple fibrous papules or angiofibromas on the face is an important clinical sign of tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). It has been suggested that a relationship exists between BHD syndrome and TSC and there was a case of BHD syndrome reported recently, in which multiple fibrous papules or angiofibroma lesions were observed. This report describes the first case, to our knowledge, of fibrofolliculoma in a patient with TSC. Read More
