An additional example of calcified cavernous hemangioma of the liver, a rare disease confined to a hypertensive woman, presenting the clinical triad composed of: (1) hypertension, (chiefly in women); (2) hepatomegaly of stony consistency, (simulating primary or metastatic cancer); (3) characteristic roentgen calcification in the region of the liver with a tendency to radiating trabeculations from a common center toward the periphery, is described. To date the additional case report brings the total to 15 known cases of calcified cavernous hemangioma of the liver, exhibiting the author's clinical syndrome, supporting beyond doubt the contention of the existing clinical triad.

    Intramuscular hemangiomas are rare, benign tumors of vascular origin. The masseter is the muscle most commonly involved in the head and neck region. Because of their infrequency, deep location, and unfamiliar presentation, these lesions are seldom correctly diagnosed clinically. This case report...

    The article presents a case report regarding intramuscular cavernous hemangioma in a patient with juxtarticular swelling. Magnetic resonance imaging scans suggested a partially sclerosed hemangioma with no communication with the joint cavity. The case illustrates that instramusuclar hemangiomas...

    Almost all angiomas belong to one of these three groups: (1) those associated with blood vessels the hemangiomas; (2) those associated with lymph vessels the lymphangiomas; and (3) those associated with neuromyoarterial glomera the glomangiomas. These tumors were reviewed by Willis. In recent...

    Management of unresolved hemangiomas and venous malformations is a real challenging problem because of their grotesque nature and aesthetic considerations. In our study we have used percutaneous injection of N-butyl cyanoacrylate (NBCA) in such lesions to make these lesions amenable to easy...

    Hemangiomas of infancy do not always regress spontaneously. Dermatologist Hal G.

    Compressive vertebral haemangiomas (VHs) are rare. Correct preoperative diagnosis is useful both for operative planning (since compressive VHs are extremely vascular lesions) and to allow preoperative embolisation. Numerous radiological signs for VHs have been described, but compressive VHs...
