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 years there have been brief reports from the United States and elsewhere, including an African country. This paper presents data collected over a period of 6 years at a central laboratory serving the Igbos, one of the largest ethnic groups in Nigeria, West Africa.
