Development of a biomarker of efficacy in second-line treatment for lymphangioma of the tongue: a pilot study.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 12 12;57(10):1137-1142. Epub 2019 Nov 12.

Department of Pathology, Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University. Electronic address:

Lymphangioma of the tongue is a rare lymphatic malformation, and various authors have reported the successful use of sirolimus for its treatment. However, the safety of sirolimus in children needs further evaluation so that those who do not respond are not necessarily exposed to its potential adverse effects. We hypothesised that assessment of lymphangiogenesis can be used to predict whether the patient will respond to sirolimus, so we organised a prospective study after ethics committee approval had been given.

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

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.

b Center for Orbital Diseases, Medical Center and Medical Faculty , University of Freiburg , Freiburg , Germany.

Microcystic lymphatic malformations are difficult to treat surgically, especially when located in the orbital apex. Recently, pharmacologic inhibition of the mTOR pathway by sirolimus was reported as a safe and efficacious treatment option for lymphatic malformations (also known as lymphangiomas). We report the case of a young male patient in which a unilateral, retrobulbar lymphatic malformation regressed to a large extent under treatment with 1 mg sirolimus given orally twice a day over a period of six months.

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

Cystic lymphangiomas are congenital benign lesions occurring predominantly in the head and neck area, especially in the posterior cervical triangle. These malformations involving the lymphatic vessels are frequently diagnosed in children. We report the clinical case of a 28-year-old adult patient with cystic lymphangioma on the floor of the oral cavity extending gradually to the left submandibular region. Read More

Evaluation of OK-432 Injection Therapy as Possible Primary Treatment of Intraoral Ranula.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2017 Feb 24;75(2):336-342. Epub 2016 Aug 24.

Professor and Chair, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Tokyo Medical University, Tokyo, Japan.

Purpose: A ranula is a pseudocyst caused by mucous extravasation from the sublingual gland. Recently, a sclerosing agent, OK-432 (picibanil), has been reported to be highly effective for treating lymphangioma and cervical cystic lesions. The present study assessed the effectiveness of OK-432 injection therapy for intraoral ranula to clarify whether it can be used as the primary treatment. Read More

Associate Professor, Department of Oral Medicine & Radiology, Pt. B D Sharma University of Health Sciences , Rohtak, Haryana, India .

Lymphangiomas are uncommon congenital hamartomas of the lymphatic system, usually diagnosed in infancy and early childhood. They are rarely situated in oral cavity and most commonly identified on the anterior two-thirds of the tongue. Though rarely seen in the oral cavity, lymphangiomas are the entities which should be taken into consideration by the clinician while examining vesicular lesions of the oral cavity. Read More

Dermoid Cyst of Submental Region Mimicking Pilomatricoma.

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.

Lymphatic malformations-previously called lymphangiomas or cystic hygromas-are regarded as non-malignant primary disorders of the lymphatic system. They appear predominantly in infants and children, with 90 % of cases being diagnosed by the age of 2 years. Also, they constitute an infrequent entity, accounting for 5 % of all benign tumors in infants and children. Read More

Mandibular Body Resection and Setback for Severe Malocclusion in Lymphatic Malformations.

J Craniofac Surg 2016 May;27(3):724-6

*Department of Pediatric Plastic Surgery, Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus†Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH.

Extensive lymphangiomas of the facial skeleton result in deforming forces leading to ongoing masticatory, speech, oral hygiene, and airway problems. This paper presents a small series of patients with severe mandibular overgrowth secondary to lymphatic malformations. Following debulking of the malformations and tongue reductions, the authors describe the results of their treatment with bilateral mandibular body resections and setback. 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
