3/16. Pyogenic granuloma (pregnancy tumor) of the nasal cavity. A case report.

    BACKGROUND: Pyogenic granuloma is a benign lesion of unknown etiology that occurs in the skin and mucous membranes. It has been reported as a common lesion of the oral cavity and, less commonly, the nasal cavity. Although its etiology is unclear, pyogenic granuloma has long been associated with pregnancy, oral contraceptives and trauma. The term pregnancy tumor has been used to reflect the association with pregnancy; nevertheless, pyogenic granuloma is often misdiagnosed in obstetric patients. CASE: We present the case of a 37-year-old, pregnant woman with an enlarging nasal mass ultimately diagnosed as pyogenic granuloma. The patient was treated successfully with endoscopic excision of the lesion. CONCLUSION: Pyogenic granuloma is a rapidly growing lesion that should be considered in the differential diagnosis of any gravid patient with a mass in the oral or nasal cavity. The lesion may result in complications of the pregnancy, and management should be individualized for each patient.

4/16. Lobular capillary haemangioma of the nasal cavity: observation of three specific cases.

    Lobular Capillary Haemangioma of the nasal cavity: observation of three specific cases. Lobular Capillary Haemangioma, unproperly called "Pyogenic granuloma", is a benign vascular tumour pedunculated on the skin and on mucous membranes of the oral and nasal cavities. Microtrauma and pregnancy are the most often evocated aetiologic factors. epistaxis and nasal obstruction are the most marked symptoms of this irregular and friable mass. We report three cases (two adult and one paediatric) of this pathology. Two have as trigger factor a nasal microtrauma, the third an oestro-progestative impregnation. A clinical, radiological and histological description allows us to expose the characteristics of this lesion that remains obscure to many rhinologists. Lobular Capillary Haemangioma has to be evocated in the differential diagnosis of each haemorrhagic endonasal mass.

5/16. A giant pyogenic granuloma in the nasal cavity caused by nasal packing.

    Pyogenic granuloma is a benign, rapidly growing hemorrhagic lesion of unknown origin. This disorder, however, is obscure to many rhinologists, because the nose is a relatively rare location for the lesion. In the practice of otorhinolaryngology, nasal packing is a very common procedure for nasal bleeding and postoperative hemostasis. However, few pyogenic granulomas occurring from nasal packing have been reported in the literature. A 56-year-old man underwent nasal packing with vaseline gauze because of nasal bleeding. Two months later, a dark brown nasal tumor was found in his nasal cavity. He underwent endoscopic endonasal removal of the tumor. The pathology result showed a pyogenic granuloma. This is the third case recorded in the literature of a confirmed pyogenic granuloma occuring as a complication of nasal packing. This uncommon lesion should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a rapidly growing hemorrhagic lesion within the nasal fossa.

6/16. Lobular capillary haemangioma of the nasal vestibule: a rare entity.

    The authors report a case of an 8-year-old boy with lobular capillary haemangioma (LCH) of the nasal vestibule presenting with nasal blockage, nasal discharge and epistaxis. LCH of the nasal vestibule is rarely reported in the English literature, and the authors feel that it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of lesion of the nasal vestibule. Unnecessary investigations could be avoided if its diagnosis is considered, especially in children.

7/16. Tracheal lobular capillary hemangioma: a rare cause of recurrent hemoptysis.

    Lobular capillary hemangioma (LCH) is a polypoid form of capillary hemangioma occurring on the skin and mucosal surfaces. While LCH of the oral and nasal cavity is a well-known entity, tracheal localization is extremely rare. We present the case of a 72-year-old woman with recurrent hemoptysis due to a small tumor of the proximal trachea. By endoscopic removal of the tumor by flexible bronchoscopy, the diagnosis of LCH was made, and during the following year there was no recurrent hemoptysis. To our knowledge, this is the first case of histologically proven LCH of the trachea.

8/16. Pediatric lobular capillary hemangioma of the nasal cavity.

    Lobular capillary hemangioma (LCH), also called pyogenic granuloma, is a benign vascular tumor that is pedunculated on the skin and the mucous membranes of the oral cavity. This disease occurs in all ages, but more often in the 3rd decade, and is seen in females more than males. LCH commonly appears in early childhood and affects males more than females in the pediatric age group. The gingiva, lips, tongue and buccal mucosa are the most common sites of mucosal LCH, but the nasal cavity is rare. Micro-trauma and hormonal factors are the most common etiologic factors. epistaxis and nasal obstruction are the most marked symptoms. We describe the case of a 6-year-old girl with intra-nasal lobular capillary hemangioma presented with epistaxis and nasal obstruction. This should be considered in the differential diagnosis of childhood endonasal masses with bleeding. Total excision using endoscopic technique is the treatment of choice.

9/16. A case of giant nasal pyogenic granuloma gravidarum.

    Pyogenic granuloma gravidarum occurs as oral or nasal lesions in approximately 5% of pregnant women. nasal mucosa is an unusual site for this lesion with few cases reported in the literature. A case of giant nasal pyogenic granuloma gravidarum that required radical excision through an open rhinotomy after superselective embolization is described. The patient had a good cosmetic result and a satisfactory airway when she was seen for follow-up 1 year after surgery. Giant pyogenic granuloma gravidarum is best managed with a multidisciplinary approach involving radical excision after preoperative superselective embolization for safe and complete removal of the lesion.

10/16. nasal septum giant pyogenic granuloma after a long lasting nasal intubation: case report.

    The authors present a case of Pyogenic granuloma (PG) arising from the nasal septum in the posterior nasal cavity of a patient male sex, caucasian, 32 years old, with a previous history of cranioencephalic trauma, several neurosurgeries for different subsequent neurological problems and the use of a nasogastric tube for feeding (nasal intubation) during 30 days. He underwent surgery in St. Vincent de Paul Hospital (Rio de Janeiro) on May 18, 1993, for the tumor removal and straightening of the nasal septum. Under endoscopic guidance the complete excision of the tumor mass was perfectly done thanks to the excellent exposure of the lesion, provided by the enlarged telescopic view, and the wide access afforded by the septum straighttening plus the cartilaginous septum mobilization through the maxilla-premaxilla approach of Cottle, allied to the lateralization and volume reduction of the right inferior nasal concha, simultaneously performed, thus making lateral rhinotomy or "degloving" unnecessary. The patient is until now (2004) completely free of the lesion operated on. This is the first report in the literature of such a lesion associated to nasal intubation as the triggering agent.
