All of them underwent magnetic resonance imaging and cerebral digital subtraction angiography DSA.

Diffuse cavernous hemangioma of the rectum is an uncommon disease with less than reported cases that affects mainly young adults. The pathogenesis of hemangioma is still not understood. Computed tomography and particularly magnetic resonance imaging, given their high precision to delimit the lesion and its relations to adjacent structures, are imaging studies that are mandatory before surgical treatment.

The authors report on two cases of association of a cavernous angioma with a ganglioglioma and an oligodendroglioma respectively. Although alternative therapies such as sclerotherapy, criotherapy or argon fulguration caveenoso been used, these procedures are only of limited value in the case of well-defined, small lesions; because of this, most authors have been abandoned these treatment nowadays.

We report three cases of this condition, describing findings of diffusion-weighted imaging in this kind of lesion for the first time in literature.

Complete surgical excision of the lesion with a sphincter-saving procedure is the primary mode of treatment conservative proctectomy with coloanal anastomosis.

We can include cases of angiogliomas either as an exclusive pathological entity, or as a unique angloma of angiogliomatous tumors composed of a low-grade glioma associated with an important vascular component.


The loss of function of these genes is believed to be responsible for cerebral cavernous malformations. Cavernous hemangiomas are the most common benign tumors of the liver. Retrieved from ” https: Exacerbation of symptoms in pregnant women have been reported, improving after delivery 2,3,9.

Check date values in: A year-old girl was admitted in our department for progressive bilateral facial palsy. A change in size of lesions in the noselips cwvernoso, or eyelids can be treated with steroid drugs to slow its progress.

Indeed, cavernomas can be induced experimentally in rats after inoculation of Polyoma virus, while the neoplasm can be induced directly after inoculation of SV40 virus of the Papova family.

The vascular component was observed in some regions of the tumoral mass. Am J Gastroenterol ; Angioma cavernoso angioms seio cavernoso: Cavernous angioma of the cavernous sinus is an extremely rare condition, and its differential diagnosis with tumors, namely para-sellar meningiomas and schwannomas, is often difficult.

The true incidence of cavernous hemangiomas is difficult to estimate because they are frequently misdiagnosed as other venous malformations. Diffuse cavernous haemangioma of the rectum in childhood.

Congenital hemangiomas that appear on the skin are known as either vascular or red birthmarks. The advent cavermoso magnetic resonance imaging MRI raised new diagnostic perspectives for this condition as we report in the study. CT 5 and particularly MRI are highly accurate in delimiting the lesion and its relation to adjacent structures. Oligoden-droglial proliferativeabnormality associated with arteriovenous malformation: Genetic researchers are still antioma on determining the cause of the illness and the mechanism behind blood vessel formation.


Diffuse cavernous hemangioma of the rectum and sigmoid. They are common lesions of the cerebral hemispheres, although they can occur anywhere in the central nervous system.

Cavernous hemangioma

Diagnosis is usually reached by barium enema examination, colonoscopy, findings on selective inferior mesenteric artery angiography, and other imaging studies such as computed tomography CT cavrrnoso magnetic resonance imaging MRI.

Commonly used surgical techniques include abdominal-perineal amputation and “sleeve” coloanal anastomosis 14, An oral endoscopy was carried out to exclude the presence of vascular lesions at this level.

According to the opinion of most authors, biopsy is not advisable during colonoscopy, since imaging techniques are sufficient for an accurate diagnosis, and the risk of bleeding while manipulating this lesion is not negligible.

It has been recently suggested that radionuclide studies, particularly Tc scans, may play a role in the assessment of the extension of these lesions. Complete surgical excision of the lesion with a sphincter-saving procedure is the primary mode of treatment: Cavernous hemangiomas located on the brain are referred to as cerebral cavernomas or more usually as cerebral cavernous malformations CCMs [1] and can be found in the white matter, but often abut the cerebral cortex.

D ICD – Neurological exam was normal. Cavernous Angioma associated with Oligo- Astrocytoma-like proliferation: Electron microscopy was not performed. The lesions are often well circumscribed with a glial plane between the lesion and normal cord.
