1/526. Endovascular papillary angioendothelioma (Dabska tumor) of bone.

    Endovascular papillary angioendothelioma, also known as Dabska tumor, is a rare vascular neoplasm that usually involves the skin or subcutaneous tissue of children. There have been no reported cases of this lesion occurring in bone. We report a Dabska tumor in the distal femur of a 45-year-old woman who, clinically and radiologically, was felt to have an osteoid osteoma. Histologic study of the lesion showed a hemangioma with budding fronds of endothelial cells, a feature characteristic of the Dabska tumor. We feel that the lesion arose in a pre-existing hemangioma, a hypothesis suggested in a few other case reports. Endovascular papillary angioendothelioma is a low-grade malignant neoplasm, although only one patient has died due to this lesion. Our patient is asymptomatic without evidence of recurrence 1 year post curettage. ( info)

2/526. hemangioendothelioma of bone in a patient with a constitutional supernumerary marker.

    A 13-year old girl was diagnosed as having a bone hemangioendothelioma. Cytogenetic studies identified the presence of a small supernumerary marker chromosome in this patient. Classical cytogenetic methods using G-, C-, Ag-NOR-banding were supplemented by spectral karyotyping (SKY) and fluorescence in situ hybridization to reveal a karyotype 47,XX, mar.ish der(22)(D22S543 ) karyotype in cells derived from the tumor and lymphocytes. These findings suggest that the supernumerary marker chromosome originated from the proximal centromeric region of chromosome 22, and that trisomy of the region 22q11 was not associated with adverse phenotypic effects, but that the presence of trisomy 22q11 may be related to the development of this tumor.

3/526. Critical obstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract by a primary hemangioendothelioma in a seven month old.

    A 7-month-old presented with failure to thrive and a murmur. echocardiography demonstrated a large mass in the right ventricular outflow tract, extending through the pulmonary valve. During anaesthetic induction this caused critical obstruction of the outflow tract and cardiac arrest. Pathological diagnosis showed the lesion to be a primary hemangioendothelioma. Despite surgical excision and steroid therapy, the mass continued to grow for a period of 8 weeks, but then began to regress spontaneously. ( info)

4/526. Malignant hemangioendothelioma of the small intestine: report of a case.

    A case of malignant hemangioendothelioma (MH) of the small intestine in a 27-year-old woman is reported herein. The patient developed acute abdominal symptoms during investigations for anemia, weight loss, anorexia, and recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding. An emergency laparotomy revealed perforation of a jejunal tumor. The results of a histopathological study of the resected small bowel segment were interpreted as MH with lymph node involvement. Following this case report, a review of the relevant literature on small intestinal MH is presented. ( info)

5/526. hemangioendothelioma of the spleen: imaging findings at color Doppler, US, and CT.

    The ultrasonographic, color Doppler, and computed tomography findings of an unusual vascular primary tumor of the spleen are reported. A brief clinical and histopathological analysis of this entity is discussed and the differential diagnosis of other primary lesions of the spleen is attempted. ( info)

6/526. Sudden death with malignant hemangioendothelioma originating in the pericardium--a case report.

    The authors report a rare case of a malignant hemangioendothelioma (MH) originating in the pericardium. In this case, a metastatic skin lesion was found first, and subsequently the existence of a primary cardiac lesion was confirmed. Generally, primary cardiac tumors grow slowly, and the prognosis of MH is relatively good. In this case, however, the patient died suddenly during the creation of a pericardial window for drainage. An autopsy showed that the MH originated from a pericardial lesion in the right atrium. ( info)

7/526. Recurrent intracranial Masson's vegetant intravascular hemangioendothelioma. Case report and review of the literature.

    In the central nervous system, recurrence of intracranial Masson's vegetant intravascular hemangioendothelioma (MVIH) is rare. To the authors' knowledge, only three recurrent intracranial cases have been reported. The authors report the case of a 75-year-old woman with a recurrent left-sided cerebellopontine angle and middle cranial fossa MVIH. When the patient was 62 years of age, she underwent preoperative embolization and subtotal resection of the intracranial lesion followed by postoperative radiotherapy. She was well and free from disease until 9 years postoperatively when she became symptomatic. At 71 years of age, the patient again underwent preoperative embolization and near-gross-total resection of the lesion. Follow-up imaging performed 15 months later revealed tumor recurrence, and she underwent stereotactic gamma knife radiosurgery. At a 2.75-year follow-up review, the patient's imaging studies revealed stable residual tumor. This case report is unique in that it documents the clinical and pathological features, surgical and postoperative treatment, and long-term follow-up review of a patient with recurrent intracranial MVIH and suggests that this unusual vascular lesion is a slow-growing benign tumor rather than a reactive process. Because the pathological composition of the lesion may resemble an angiosarcoma, understanding this benign vascular neoplasm is crucial so that an erroneous diagnosis of malignancy is not made and unnecessary adjuvant therapy is not given.

8/526. Malignant haemangioendothelioma of bone in a HbSC disease patient--a case report.

    We report here a 35-year-old man with sickle cell disease (SCD), who presented in 1989 with pain in the (R) hip of 7 years duration and swelling of the (R) calf of 3 months duration. Clinical examination revealed a hard tender mass in the (R) calf. histology of the (R) calf mass revealed haemangioendothelioma (HE), similar to the histology of the (R) iliac bone mass obtained in another institution previously. He was treated with external radiotherapy with the 1.25 megavoltage beam to antero-posterior fields of the (R) hemipelvis and (R) calf, with good response. Chemotherapy was subsequently administered using 6 cycles of VAC regime. The patient remained in remission for 12 months. In 1991 he had lymphoedema of (R) lower limb and received further radiotherapy and chemotherapy after an isotope bone scan had revealed disease activity in the (R) hemipelvis, (R) femur and (L) upper tibia. He responded again with complete regression of the lymphoedema and remained well until April 1993 when the lymphoedema recurred. He died while being evaluated for further treatment. Although there is no evidence to suggest that SCD confers any protection from development of neoplasms, the co-existence of SCD with a neoplasm is not common. We consider the occurrence of HE of bone, a rare malignancy, in a HbSC patient worthy of reporting. ( info)

9/526. Intramuscular spindle cell hemangioendothelioma.

    Spindle cell hemangioendothelioma occurring in skeletal muscle is extremely rare. No reported studies have performed an imaging evaluation of intramuscular spindle cell hemangioendothelioma. We report on such a tumor arising in an unusual site, the right extensor digiti minimi, in a 46-year-old woman. An en bloc resection was performed and the patient has been disease free for 8 years. Radiologic imaging in the present case showed similar findings to those described in intramuscular hemangioma. ( info)

10/526. Juvenile hemangioma (infantile hemangioendothelioma) of the parotid gland associated with cytomegalovirus infection.

    A case of parotid juvenile hemangioma associated with cytomegalovirus infection is reported. A growing lobulated mass, measuring 30 x 20 mm, was extirpated from the left parotid gland in a 4-month-old male. Histologically, the tumor consisted of cellular plump endothelial cells, stromal cells and residual ductal and acinar elements of the parotid gland. Numerous intranuclear and cytoplasmic inclusions were observed in the ductal cells of the whole parenchymal part of the parotid gland and the residual part of the tumor. Immunohistochemically, some nuclei of the ductal cells possessing these inclusions were positive for the anti-cytomegalovirus antibody but there were no positive findings in the endothelial or stromal cells. Although the present lesion may suggest that the human cytomegalovirus plays some role in the etiology of juvenile hemangioma, it is unknown whether or not this association is incidental. ( info)
