    Small bowel lymphangioma causing ileo-ileal intussusception in adults.
    Int J Surg Case Rep 2017 21;41:469-472. Epub 2017 Nov 21.
    Department of Surgery, Montefiore New Rochelle Hospital, New York, USA.
    Introduction: Lymphangioma is a rare benign tumor found in gastrointestinal tract. Most lymphangiomas can occur at any age and but mostly are found in children and infants. They are mainly due to malformation of the lymphatic system. Read More

    Oral lymphangiomas - clinical and histopathological relations: An immunohistochemically analyzed case series of varied clinical presentations.
    J Oral Maxillofac Pathol 2018 Jan;22(Suppl 1):S108-S111
    Department of Oral Pathology and Microbiology, Sarjug Dental College, Darbhanga, Bihar, India.
    Lymphangiomas are benign malformations that represent hamartoma of malformed lymphatics and are composed of cystically dilated lymphatic channels which do not communicate or drain into other lymphatic channels or veins leading to accumulation of lymph. They are congenital malformations with rare occurrence in oral cavity within which tongue dorsum is the most affected site. Venous malformations are often difficult to differentiate from lymphatic malformations leading to the development of several lymphatic markers like D2-40 which seems to be useful for distinguishing vascular from lymphatic vessels.

    Oral lymphangiectasias and Crohn's disease: two case reports.
    Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol 2017 Dec 28. Epub 2017 Dec 28.
    Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust, Belfast, Northern Ireland.
    Lymphangiectasias, or acquired lymphangiomas, are rare in the oral cavity, more typically occurring on the skin or the genital area and, to our knowledge, have not been reported previously in association with Crohn's disease. Lymphangiectasias can occur at any age and develop secondary to chronic obstruction of the lymphatics. This differentiates them from congenital lymphangiomas, which are congenital malformations of the lymphatic system. Read More

    The use of sirolimus in the treatment of giant cystic lymphangioma: Four case reports and update of medical therapy.
    Medicine (Baltimore) 2017 Dec;96(51):e8871
    Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
    Rationale: Lymphatic malformations (LMs) are rare and benign anomalies resulting from the defective embryological development of the primordial lymphatic structures. Due to their permeative growth throughout all tissue layers, treatment is often challenging. Small asymptomatic lesions can be conservatively managed, while symptomatic lesions require active management. Read More

    J Maxillofac Oral Surg 2016 Jul 1;15(Suppl 2):339-42. Epub 2015 Dec 1.
    Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Farooqia Dental College and Hospital, Mysore, 570021 Karnataka.
    Diagnosis of midline neck swellings may give a myriad of options, ranging from ranula, thyroglossal duct cyst, cystic hygroma, cystic lymphangioma, epidermoid, dermoid and teratoid cysts to benign or malignant neoplasms of the mucosa or salivary glands and also rare skin appendage tumours like pilomatricoma or pilomatrix carcinoma. Various pitfalls are encountered in diagnosing these midline swellings as most of the features are overlapping. Careful history and examination have to be complemented with other diagnostic aids such as conventional radiography, ultrasonography, aspiration cytology and computed tomography to arrive at a correct diagnosis.

    Results: Surgeries for the tongues were performed in 268 cases. Read More

    Aspiration and Brushing Cytology in tumors and tumor-like conditions of the tongue: A Study of 27 Cases.
    Stomatologija 2015 ;17(2):67-72
    Department of cytopathology, Regional Hospital of Chania, Crete, Greece.
    Background: Lesions of the tongue have a broad differential diagnosis ranging from benign idiopathic processes to infections, cancers, and infiltrative disorders. An important thing to remember is that most tongue lesions will resolve spontaneously or with simple therapy within a week, if not, they should be biopsied or evaluated further for a definitive diagnosis of a potentially serious disorder. Some tongue lesions may be clues to other underlying illnesses which require further evaluation Tongue lesions are traditionally evaluated by surgical biopsy. Read More

    Background Data: Cystic lymphatic malformations, or lymphangiomas, are mature lymphatic malformations, consisting of abnormal lymphatic vessels. Surgical excision is considered by most surgeons to be the treatment of choice for lymphangioma. Read More

    Feasibility of laparoscopic and endoscopic cooperative surgery for gastric submucosal tumors (with video).
    Gastrointest Endosc 2016 Jul 9;84(1):47-52. Epub 2015 Dec 9.
    Department of Gastroenterological Surgery, Cancer Institute Hospital, Japanese Foundation for Cancer Research, Tokyo, Japan.
    Background And Aims: Laparoscopic gastric resection is widely used for gastric submucosal tumors (SMTs). However, determining an appropriate resection line using only the laparoscopic approach is difficult. We developed a laparoscopic and endoscopic cooperative surgery (LECS) technique by combining laparoscopic gastric resection with endoscopic submucosal dissection, and we have used this procedure to resect gastric SMTs.

Most common intra oral site being the anterior two-thirds of tongue, usually superficial in location and demonstrates a pebbly surface that resembles a cluster of translucent vesicles, they are typically soft and fluctuant masses. Secondary hemorrhage into the lymphatic spaces may cause some of these vesicles to become purple. Read More
