Acquired progressive lymphangioma is a rare vascular tumor with a locally aggressive behavior. Histologically it is characterized by a proliferation of numerous, dilated, thin-walled vessels lined by flat endothelial cells with no nuclear atypia. The vessels appear to dissect between the collagen fibers. It usually presents as an asymptomatic, slow-growing,(More)

We present the case of a 49-year-old woman with a slow-growing asymptomatic tumor on the right pretibial region that was initially considered to be a lipoma.(More)

BACKGROUND Photodynamic therapy (PDT) and imiquimod are the treatments of choice for actinic keratosis (AK). As they have different mechanisms of action, it seems reasonable to assume that applying both treatments sequentially would be efficacious. OBJECTIVES We sought to determine which of these therapeutic modalities provides a better clinical and(More)
BACKGROUND Few reports on literature give detailed figures on prognostic factors of locoregional skin recurrence in cutaneous melanoma. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate clinical and histological prognostic factors following development of locoregional cutaneous metastasis as the only progression site from melanoma. METHODS Data from 1327(More)
BACKGROUND Cryotherapy is a physical procedure whose immunogenic capability enables it to destroy tumour cells, at least partially. Consequently, it can boost the effect of imiquimod. OBJECTIVE The objective of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy of combining cryotherapy and imiquimod in patients who did not achieve a complete response after(More)
