Hemangioendothelioma


Presentation

  • In the present report, we describe a case of PEH in a 39-yr-old woman. Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells were positive for CD34.[pesquisa.bvsalud.org]
  • The present case, on review and correlation with histomorphology, depicts most of the cytologic features of hepatic EH.[cytojournal.com]
  • It often presents in infancy with cardiac failure because of extensive arteriovenous shunting within the lesion.[en.wikipedia.org]

Subcutaneous Nodule
  • nodule. [2] : 601 Kaposiform hemangioendothelioma (also known as "Infantile kaposiform hemangioendothelioma" [3] ) is an uncommon vascular tumor, first described by Niedt, Greco, et al.[en.wikipedia.org]

Workup

  • Therefore, preoperative diagnostic workup is of utmost importance to differentiate it from other primary and metastatic tumors of the liver.[bib.irb.hr]

Treatment

  • Treatment [ edit ] Treatment is varied and depends on the site and extent of tumor involvement, site(s) of metastasis, and specific individual factors.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • •Others like surgery can be done as treatment for the virus during its most severe.[en.wikipedia.org]

Prognosis

  • Weiss in 1996 as "spindle cell hemangioma", rather than hemangioendothelioma, due to the excellent prognosis observed in a group of 78 patients. [5] Retiform hemangioendothelioma (also known as a "Hobnail hemangioendothelioma" [3] ) is a low-grade angiosarcoma[en.wikipedia.org]
  • The clinical signs and the prognosis of this tumor are quite variable. From the present case report, the authors have sought to contribute with literature data. Hepatic Pseudotumor Due To Nodular Fatty Sparing: The. OBJECTIVE.[sultowanigh.ml]
  • Prognosis [ edit ] Although Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma typically presents as a low-grade tumor, occasionally, eHAE presents as high grade and more aggressive. eHAE presenting in the pleura, for example, is associated with a much more aggressive[en.wikipedia.org]

Etiology

  • The etiology is still a dilemma. Studies about suggestive hypothesis are ongoing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • Epidemiology [ edit ] It is so rare that only 0.01 percent of the cancer population has it and it affects about 1 person in every 1,000,000 worldwide. [4] Around 20 cases are diagnosed in America every year – the cause is unknown. [5] It is unresponsive[en.wikipedia.org]

Age distribution

Prevention

  • Because the lesion may otherwise mimic a hepatic tumor, knowledge of these findings may prevent unnecessary biopsy or inappropriate treatment. Inflammatory pseudotumor of the liver: 13 cases of MRI.[sultowanigh.ml]
  • When the lesions are small and limited in number, some authors recommend surgical resection or an preventive approach to asymptomatic patients. Successful curative resection achieves good outcomes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
