Angiosarcoma, one of the least common sarcomas, has become increasingly important because of its association with radiation therapy, especially for breast cancer. Most are sporadic, presenting as cutaneous tumors in the scalp/face of elderly patients. However, angiosarcoma has a wide anatomic distribution including soft tissue, visceral organ, and osseous locations. ...

Arterio-venous malformation (AVM) is a congenital vascular malformation that is neither a venous malformation nor a haemangioma. An AVM is a potentially life-threatening and limb-threatening lesion, especially the 'fistulous' truncular form due to its unique embryological and haemodynamic characteristics. AVM treatment requires an early aggressive approach, one that is careful ...

Epistaxis is a common problem in children that typically is not severe and seldom requires hospitalization. The nose is a highly vascular structure with a large surface area; subsequently, it is highly predisposed to bleeding. Childhood vasculitides are very rare and are commonly diagnosed by characteristic lesions on imaging studies ...

OBJECTIVE: Subglottic hemangioma (SGH) is a rare tumor of childhood often associated with airway compromise. Recently, the possibility that many SGH may be congenital hemangiomas rather than classical infantile hemangiomas (IH) has been raised, with important diagnostic and therapeutic implications. We present the largest, multi-institutional study, to date, with immunophenotypic ...

Head and neck high-flow vascular malformations are uncommon lesions whose management presents a clinical challenge. Although in some rare cases a complete cure is possible, in the vast majority the primary objective is symptom control, cosmesis improvement, and preservation of vital functions. Striving for "complete" treatment in most cases results ...
