Extragonadal germ cell tumors are most commonly encountered in the anterior mediastinum. The presence of sarcomatous malignancies in these tumors is a rare phenomenon that adversely impacts patient prognosis because of poor response to conventional cisplatin-based chemotherapy. Even more unusual is the presence of florid benign somatic proliferations that overshadow the germ cell component, often resulting in misdiagnosis and inappropriate management. Read More

Cardiac hemangiomas account for less than 2% of primary cardiac tumors. They can present with palpitation, arrhythmia, right ventricular outflow tract obstruction, pseudoangina, and in more extreme cases sudden death. Our case report presents a 41-year-old man with atypical chest pain, who had a normal heart examination, electrocardiogram, and an unremarkable family and medical history. Read More

Purpose: GNAQ mutations have been identified in port wine stains (both syndromic and non-syndromic) and melanocytic ocular neoplasms. This study investigates the presence of GNAQ mutations in diffuse- (those associated with Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS)) and solitary choroidal hemangiomas.
Participants: Tissue from 11 patients with the following diagnoses: port wine stain (n = 3), diffuse choroidal hemangioma (n = 1), solitary choroidal hemangioma (n = 6), choroidal nevus (n =1) METHODS: Ten specimens were interrogated with Memorial Sloan Kettering-Integrated Mutation Profiling of Actionable Cancer Targets (MSK-IMPACT), a hybridization capture-based next-generation sequencing assay for targeted deep sequencing of all exons and selected introns of 468 key cancer genes in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tumors.

Neovascularization in cancer or retinopathy is driven by pathological changes that foster abnormal sprouting of endothelial cells. Mouse genetic studies indicate that the stress-induced small GTPase RhoB is dispensable for normal physiology but required for pathogenic angiogenesis. In diabetic retinopathy, retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) or age-related wet macular degeneration (AMD), progressive pathologic anatomic changes and ischemia foster neovascularization are characterized by abnormal sprouting of endothelial cells.

Ionizing radiation was used in the past for treatment of several benign cutaneous conditions, and particularly hemangiomas. Even though radiotherapy was generally effective, it significantly augmented the risk for malignancies, resulting in a consequent heavy decline of its use for benign conditions. However, radiation-induced neoplasia is still encountered in adult patients irradiated during childhood or adolescence. Read More

Purpose Of Review: This chapter will summarize the most recent literature regarding the current state of medical treatment for vascular anomalies.
Recent Findings: Research into the biology of these anomalies has strengthened our understanding of each anomaly and has helped to pave the way for more tailored treatment options involving molecular and/or genetic targets.
Summary: While there is still a role for surgical intervention, medical therapies that target the etiology of vascular anomalies may represent an alternative or adjunctive approach in the management of these lesions. Read More

Introduction And Objective: Oral benign neoplasms (OBNs) exhibit some features that can guide the professionals to the correct diagnosis and best treatment. Through retrospective studies, medical records can be reviewed to better describe a given population and, furthermore, help clinicians in routine practice. In this context, the objective of this paper was to analyze the cases of OBNs of an oral pathology referral department, from 2003 to 2017, in order to better understand their epidemiological and clinicopathological characteristics.

OBJECTIVEVon Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL) is a tumor predisposition syndrome characterized by CNS hemangioblastomas (HBs) and clear cell renal cell carcinomas (RCCs) due to hypoxia-inducible factor activation (pseudohypoxia). Because of the lack of effective medical therapies for VHL, HBs and RCCs account for significant morbidity and mortality, ultimately necessitating numerous neurological and renal surgeries. Propranolol is an FDA-approved pan-beta adrenergic antagonist with antitumor effects against infantile hemangiomas (IHs) and possibly VHL HBs. Read More

Proper nomenclature is a major obstacle in understanding and managing vascular anomalies. Often the same term is used for totally different types of lesions or, conversely, the same lesion may be labeled with different terms. Although in recent times there has been a greater understanding of the problems concerning vascular anomalies, episodes of improper use of terminology still remain. Read More

Purpose: To compare diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM), and tri-exponential models of the diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signal for the characterization of renal lesions in relationship to histopathological findings.
Methods: Sixteen patients planned to undergo nephrectomy for kidney tumour were scanned before surgery at 3 T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), with T-weighted imaging, DTI and diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) using ten b-values. DTI parameters (mean diffusivity [MD] and fractional anisotropy [FA]) were obtained by iterative weighted linear least squared fitting of the DTI data and bi-, and tri-exponential fit parameters (D, fand D, ff) using a nonlinear fit of the multiple b-value DWI data.

Racemose hemangioma is a rare, benign vascular malformation. In the episclera, it appears as dilated, tortuous blood vessels that pass from the fornix over the globe surface to the limbal area, without capillary architecture, and then loop backward into the fornix. Fluorescein angiogram reveals the vascular malformation with rapid flow and confirms the episcleral vessels to be large in caliber and with a curvilinear, twisted configuration. Read More
