11/147. Macerated fetus in utero relating to intracranial angioma: report of 2 cases.

    Two macerated fetuses in utero are presented. The mothers experienced no abnormalities during pregnancy. Both fetuses were found postmortem to have intracranial angiomas. In case 1, the angioma in the choroid plexus of the right lateral ventricle was associated with intraventricular and subarchnoid hemorrhages. There was additional angiomatosis in the leptomeninges and substance of the brain. In case 2, there was leptomeningeal angiomatosis with diffuse subarchnoid hemorrhage. It is suggested that spontaneous rupture of the angioma of the choroid plexus in case 1 and of the leptomeninges in case 2 resulted in immediate death of the fetuses with subsequent maceration in utero. Asymptomatic angioma of the fourth ventricular choroid plexus is also described in case 2 because of its extreme rarity.

12/147. Eruptive pseudoangiomatosis.

    Eruptive pseudoangiomatosis (EPA) is a rare, benign, spontaneously regressing childhood exanthem. The term was recently coined by Prose et al.1 to describe a dermatosis characterized by the sudden onset of a few to several bright red angioma-like papules with a different histopathology from the true angiomas. We describe three patients with the typical lesions of EPA but with some peculiar features not previously described. We discuss the suspected viral aetiology of EPA, and hypothesize a multifactorial aetiopathogenesis.

13/147. Successful treatment with cyclophosphamide of life-threatening diffuse hemangiomatosis involving the liver.

    A female neonate with diffuse hemangiomatosis and hepatic hemangiomas had cardiac insufficiency develop and had failure to thrive. Her disease was unresponsive to prednisone. She received two courses of cyclophosphamide 10 days apart and a final course 2.5 weeks later. Twelve days after the second course of cyclophosphamide, her liver was significantly smaller. She is now 6-years-old, well-developed, and has no signs of hepatomegaly, malnourishment, or heart failure. cyclophosphamide appears to be a safe, effective, and rapid treatment of life-threatening hemangiomas of infancy.

14/147. Diffuse hepatic hemangiomatosis: case report.

    Hemangiomas of the liver are often incidental findings on routine abdominal ultrasonography. Majority are single and asymptomatic. We report a patient with diffuse hemangiomatosis of the liver who presented with thrombocytopenia and congestive cardiac failure.

15/147. Hemangiomatosis presenting as meralgia paresthetica.

    The authors present a 15-year-boy with meralgia paresthetica caused by the recurrence of a diffuse congenital hemangiomatosis in the pelvic region. Relief of the patient's symptoms was achieved by neurolysis of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve in the thigh and partial excision of the tumor. To our knowledge, hemangiomatosis has never been suggested as a cause of meralgia paresthetica.

16/147. Duodeno-jejunal hemangiomatosis.

    Diffuse duodeno-jejunal hemangiomatosis in children is a rare cause of bilious vomiting. In the clinical approach to bilious vomiting, tumors of the duodenum come at the end of the differential list--not to mention the rarity of hemangiomatosis. To our knowledge, isolated duodeno-jejunal hemangiomatosis as a cause of bilious vomiting in children is being reported for the first time. We analyse the various imaging modalities available to reach a clinical diagnosis.

17/147. The successful treatment of diffuse neonatal hemangiomatosis with flashlamp pulsed dye laser.

    Diffuse neonatal hemangiomatosis is a rare disease with the distinctive features of multiple hemangiomas of the skin and visceral organs. These lesions have been treated with systemic corticosteroids, interferon-alpha, and their combination. We report a patient with diffuse neonatal hemangiomatosis who had multiple cutaneous and hepatic hemangiomas. Single therapy with the flashlamp pulsed dye laser was effective for cutaneous hemangiomas, whereas the hemangiomas of the liver remained stable and no liver dysfunction or hemorrhage has occurred so far, even with no treatment.

18/147. Angiosarcoma arising from skeletal haemangiomatosis in an atomic bomb survivor.

    The authors report a unique case in which an angiosarcoma arose from skeletal haemangiomatosis in a 72 year old man. This patient had a history of atomic bomb irradiation more than 50 years ago. Radiographically, the patient had multiple sclerotic foci of benign haemangiomas in the pelvis, the sacrum, and the left femur. The patient developed a high grade angiosarcoma in the left pubic bone. It is thought that atomic bomb irradiation played an important role in the development of the malignant lesion.

19/147. liver transplantation for massive hepatic haemangiomatosis causing restrictive lung disease.

    A 34-yr-old man with hepatic haemangiomatosis presented for orthotopic liver transplantation. His massively distended abdomen caused thoracic compression and severe restrictive lung disease. Respiratory failure was the principal indication for transplantation. Increased airway pressures, pulmonary hypertension, systemic hypotension caused by aorto-caval compression, and blood loss, complicated the intra-operative anaesthetic management. weaning from mechanical ventilation was impaired by acute and chronic metabolic alkalosis, and diaphragmatic laxity.

20/147. Diffuse neonatal hemangiomatosis without cutaneous lesions in an adult--a case report.

    Diffuse neonatal hemangiomatosis (DNH) is a rare disorder that first presents with multiple cutaneous and visceral hemangiomas during the neonatal period and has a high mortality rate. The authors report a long-term survivor of DNH who presented with multiple visceral hemangiomas without cutaneous lesions. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) may play an important role in tumor progression.
