A case of giant retroperitoneal lymphangioma and IgG4-positive fibrosis: Causality or coincidence?

SAGE Open Med Case Rep 2021 20;9:2050313X211016993. Epub 2021 May 20.

Department of General, Visceral, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery, Greifswald University Medical Centre, Greifswald, Germany.

Several chronic inflammatory diseases have been found to be a subtype of IgG4-related disease, all of which have a typical clinical and histological change, which is based in particular on an overexpression of IgG4 and subsequent fibrosis. At least a part of the retroperitoneal fibrosis, which was originally classified as idiopathic, seems to be assigned to IgG4-related disease. Lymphangiomas are benign, cystic tumors that rarely occur in adults. Read More

Orbital Lymphatic-Venous Malformation Accompanied by an Intraocular Vascular Malformation: A Rare Case Study.

Case Rep Ophthalmol 2021 May-Aug;12(2):396-401. Epub 2021 May 10.

Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Lymphatic-venous malformations (LVMs) are development defects that result in abnormal connections between the lymphatic and venous systems. The authors describe a 7-weeks-old female infant who presented with a right orbital LVM extending to the ipsilateral cheek and subconjunctiva of the right eye, intracranial developmental venous anomalies in the right cerebellum, and a significant right eye intraocular retinal vascular malformation. Since orbital LVM is usually diagnosed in infancy or childhood, pediatric ophthalmologists should actively look for intraocular vascular malformations as such findings can poorly affect a patient's vision.

Dysregulation of Amphiregulin stimulates the pathogenesis of cystic lymphangioma.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2021 May;118(19)

Department of Pathology, Graduate School of Medicine and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Toyama, Toyama 930-0194, Japan;

Along with blood vessels, lymphatic vessels play an important role in the circulation of body fluid and recruitment of immune cells. Postnatal lymphangiogenesis commonly occurs from preexisting lymphatic vessels by sprouting, which is induced by lymphangiogenic factors such as vascular endothelial growth factor C (VEGF-C). However, the key signals and cell types that stimulate pathological lymphangiogenesis, such as human cystic lymphangioma, are less well known. Read More
