Congenital tufted angioma: A multicenter retrospective study of 30 cases.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 Nov 15;35(6):808-816. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

Department of Dermatology, Fundación Jiménez Díaz, Universidad Autónoma, Madrid, Spain.

Background: Recent reports indicate that tufted angioma is a rare vascular neoplasm that manifests more frequently at birth than previously thought. Few studies specifically address congenital presentation.

Objectives: We analyzed the clinicopathological characteristics, clinical course, and treatment of congenital tufted angioma (cTA) and evaluated variables that were indicative of problematic lesions. Read More

Masson's tumor of the pineal region: case report.

J Neurosurg 2018 Jun 4;128(6):1725-1730. Epub 2017 Aug 4.

Departments of1Neurosurgery and.

Intracranial intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH), also referred to as Masson's tumor, is a condition that rarely occurs in the nervous system. IPEH most frequently occurs extracranially in the skin of the face, skull, neck, and trunk and can easily be mistaken clinically, radiologically, and histologically for angiosarcoma, organizing hematoma, or other vascular malformations. IPEH accounts for roughly 2% of all vascular tumors and is extremely rare intracranially, with only 23 reported cases compared with more than 300 cases of IPEH occurring in the skin and subcutaneous tissue.

Cutaneous angiosarcoma: report of three different and typical cases admitted in a unique dermatology clinic.

An Bras Dermatol 2017 Mar-Apr;92(2):235-238

Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo (Ufes) - Vitória (ES), Brazil.

Angiosarcoma is a rare and aggressive tumor with high rates of metastasis and relapse. It shows a particular predilection for the skin and superficial soft tissues. We report three distinct and typical cases of angiosarcoma that were diagnosed in a single dermatology clinic over the course of less than a year: i) Angiosarcoma in lower limb affected by chronic lymphedema, featuring Stewart-Treves syndrome; ii) a case of the most common type of angiosarcoma loated in the scalp and face of elderly man and; iii) a skin Angiosarcoma in previously irradiated breast.

Department of Pathology, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, TN 37232, USA.

Cutaneous angiosarcoma can sometimes mimic other benign and malignant lesions, thereby presenting a difficult differential diagnosis. In the two cases of cutaneous angiosarcoma presented herein, extensive foamy cell alteration of tumor cells resembled a reactive xanthogranulomatous process. Foamy cell angiosarcoma is an unusual and deceptively benign morphologic variant of cutaneous angiosarcoma. Read More

Localized Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome with prominent perivascular fibromas.

Am J Dermatopathol 2001 Apr;23(2):149-53

Institute of Pathology, Nuremburg, Germany.

The autosomal dominant Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome is a cutaneo-intestinal condition that manifests on the skin in the form of multiple, skin-colored small papules that, histologically, prove to be mantleomas (fibrofolliculomas and trichodiscomas). These cutaneous lesions usually appear in the region of the head, neck, and upper part of the trunk. To date, only a single report in the literature describes the localized occurrence of this syndrome. Read More

The use of the frequency-doubled Q-switched Nd:YAG laser in the treatment of small cutaneous vascular lesions.

Dermatol Surg 1996 Oct;22(10):841-4

Department of Dermatologic Surgery, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, New Jersey Medical School, Newark, USA.

Background And Design: The frequency-doubled Q-switched, neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (FD QSNd:YAG) laser has proven to be safe and effective in treating cutaneous pigmented lesions and tattoos. The observance of purpura following FD QSNd:YAG laser treatment of epidermal pigmented lesions led us to evaluate the use of this laser in the treatment of vascular lesions. The treatment protocol was designed to assess the efficacy of the FD QSNd:YAG laser in the treatment of small cutaneous vascular lesions such as telangiectases and small angiomas. Read More

Transverse cervical artery fasciocutaneous free flap for head and neck reconstruction: initial anatomic and dye studies.

Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 1995 Nov;113(5):564-8

Department of Otolaryngology, McGill University, Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal, Quebec.

Method: The bilateral transverse cervical arteries of 16 fresh cadavers were exposed by an infraclavicular midline approach. Each artery was cannulated, and methylene blue dye was infused to delineate the skin territory subserved by the vessel. The two major infusion skin patterns obtained allowed fashioning of a thin fasciocutaneous flap incorporating supraclavicular skin, which was based on the transverse cervical artery; or a larger flap additionally incorporating upper back skin and varying amounts of trapezius muscle, when the artery had a dorsal scapular artery branch.

Background: Two new types of lasers, the pulsed dye laser and the Q-switched ruby laser, have shown good to excellent results in the treatment of vascular malformations and benign pigmented lesions of the skin. A new and very effective alternative to pulsed dye laser is the recently introduced Photoderm VL. This device is based on the use of a wide-band non-coherent intense pulsed light source which emits a continuous spectrum in the range of 515 nm to 1200 nm. Read More

The flashlamp-pumped 577-nm pulsed tunable dye laser: clinical efficacy and in vitro studies.

J Dermatol Surg Oncol 1988 Nov;14(11):1200-8

Department of Dermatology, Jefferson Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA 19107.

The 577-nm flashlamp-pumped tunable dye laser pulsed at 450 microseconds is rapidly becoming the treatment of choice for removal of port-wine stains and other vascular ectasias. In this study, we examined the mechanisms of vessel destruction by determining the effects of laser irradiation on three types of primary target cells in vitro: erythrocytes, endothelial cells, and fibroblasts. Clinical studies were also performed, addressing the efficacy of this laser in the treatment of port-wine stains of the head and neck, trunk, and extremities. Read More

The "crossbow" incision and nasal flap--its blood supply and clinical application.

Head Neck Surg 1984 Dec;7(2):135-8

An anatomical study of the blood supply of the nose and upper lip was done on 10 specimens. This demonstrated the blood supply of an inferiorly based nasal flap, which was successfully used to gain access for an en bloc resection of adenoid cystic carcinoma of the ethmoid sinuses, frontal sinuses, and nose. The "crossbow" incision and inferiorly based nasal flap facilitate the tridimensional excision of lesions in the anterior base of the skull, the midline portion of middle base of the skull, and the paranasal sinuses.
