Lymphangioma circumscriptum of glans penis: a report of two cases.

Dermatol Online J 2018 Aug 15;24(8). Epub 2018 Aug 15.

Naja Clinic, Department of Dermatology, Gilan, Rasht.

Lymphangioma circumscriptum is a developmental anomaly of lymphatic vessels, which appear as aggregates of clear or hemorrhagic vesicles on the skin or mouth. Glans penis involvement is very uncommon. Because of the sensitivity of the area, possible functional, cosmetic, or psychologic disturbances can result. Read More

Splenic cystic lymphangiomatosis in association with omental varices and portal hypertension: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Oct;97(40):e12552

Division of Hepatogastroenterology, Department of Internal Medicine, China Medical University Hospital.

Rational: Lymphangiomatosis is rare and benign, and slowly proliferating lymphatic vessels of unknown etiology and visceral lymphangiomatosis involving the spleen is rare. Since lymphangiomatosis may be asymptomatic or present as a sense of fullness, splenic cystic lymphangiomatosis is a disease of little concern.

Patient Concerns: A 34-year-old woman suffering from progressive epigastric fullness after oral intake for two weeks. Read More

A case of microcystic lymphatic malformation successfully treated with topical sirolimus.

Dermatol Ther 2018 09 22;31(5):e12673. Epub 2018 Aug 22.

Gulhane Medical Faculty, Department of Dermatology, University of Health Sciences, Ankara, Turkey.

Microcystic lymphatic malformation (MLM), also known as "lymphangioma circumscriptum," is a lymphatic malformation which may involve the skin and subcutaneous tissues. Progressive growth of lesions may cause pressure to the surrounding organs. Lesions frequently reoccur after treatment with surgery, sclerotherapy, radiotherapy, and laser therapy. 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 2018 07 28;126(1):e31-e34. 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

Lymphangioma is a benign hamartomatous lesion caused by congenital malformation of the lymphatic system. This benign tumor is detected most commonly at birth or in early childhood but rarely in adults. On clinical examination, most lymphangiomas contain clear lymph fluid, but some may present as transparent vesicles containing red blood cells due to hemorrhage. Read More

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.

Objectives: To demonstrate the usefulness of intraoral ultrasonography (IOUS) for tongue mass lesions, we analyzed surgery cases excluding squamous-cell carcinoma and leukoplakia and compared IOUS and pathological findings.

Methods: We used the hospital information system and Radiology Information System to evaluate the IOUS and pathological findings of patients who underwent surgeries for tongue masses in the past 11 years.

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

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

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.

Lymphangiomas are benign hamartomatous tumors of the lymphatic channels which present as developmental malformations arising from sequestration of lymphatic tissue that do not communicate with the rest of the lymphatic channels. Lymphatic vessels are filled with a clear protein-rich fluid containing few lymph cells. It can also occur in association with hemangioma. Read More

Lymphangioma is considered as benign as well as a hamartomatous lesion of the lymphatic vessels that shows a marked predilection for the head and neck region. The most common site for intraoral lymphangiomas is the anterior two-thirds on the dorsal surface of tongue resulting in macroglossia. Such patients have a tendency of speech disturbances, poor oral hygiene, and bleeding from tongue following a trauma. Read More

J Lifestyle Med 2015 Mar 30;5(1):30-3. Epub 2015 Mar 30.

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Yonsei University Wonju College of Medicine, Wonju, Korea.

Lymphangioma is a congenital malformation of lymphatic system and often involves the oral cavity. When lymphangioma is located on the mouth floor and enlarges, it can compress the airway and make intubation difficult. The GlideScope(®) video laryngoscope is sometimes used in routine intubation, but is most commonly used in difficult or failed intubation. Read More
