Ultrasound evaluation of patients with hepatic masses should extend beyond basic lesion detection to characterization and clinical management. A systematic approach for hepatic lesion evaluation using ultrasound makes it possible to triage patients and, in many cases, leads to definitive diagnosis that may eliminate the need for additional imaging.

Vasoformative tumors (almost exclusively hemangiomas) are the most common lesions of the major salivary glands during infancy and early childhood. They are more common in the parotid gland but are particularly rare in the submandibular gland. Changes in blood flow dynamics within hemangiomas result in thrombus formation and phleboliths. Hemangiomas ...

A 54-year-old man presented with left intraconal cavernous haemangioma resulting in globe compression and hyperopia. The tumour was excised completely via lateral orbitotomy approach. Complete excision of tumour did not result in resolution of globe flattening and hyperopia after 21 months. Persistent globe flattening despite removal of a longstanding orbital ...
