    Intracranial dural arteriovenous fistulas (dAVFs) with perimedullary drainage represent a rare subtype of intracranial dAVF. Patients usually experience slowly progressive ascending myelopathy and/or lower brainstem signs. We present a case of foramen magnum dural arteriovenous fistula with an...

    Vaginal vascular malformation (VVM) is rare. There are, in fact, less than ten cases reported to date. VVM often presents as a mass protruding from the vagina, mimicking pelvic organ prolapse (POP). It can coexist with POP, thereby usually exaggerating the severity of POP. We report a case of...

    Infantile hemangiomas (IH) are common benign tumors in infancy, affecting 5-10% of all infants and they can still cause disfigurement and serious complications depending on their location and size, which can be associated with ulcerations and haemorrhage. Since 2008, propranolol has become the...

    Littoral cell angioma (LCA) is a rare primary splenic vascular tumor, originating from the littoral cells lining the red pulp sinuses of the spleen. There are only a handful of case reports of LCA in children to be found in the literature. We performed a retrospective analysis of the medical...
