Lobular capillary haemangioma is a relatively common benign mucocutaneous lesion in paediatric age. The etiopathogenesis is not very clear, but it seems that lesions originate de novo from a process of lobular vascular proliferation that appears to be neoplastic. Congenital onset is usually very rare; it happens only in 1.1% in literature. We report a case of a newborn with a giant congenital lobular capillary haemangioma of the head (left occipital region) which increased rapidly with…

Pyogenic Granuloma in Children

The majority of the patients had uncomplicated pyogenic granuloma and were treated with a single shave excision and electrocautery, with no recurrences and good cosmetic results.

Subcutaneous granuloma pyogenicum. Lobular capillary hemangioma.

Five cases of subcutaneous angiomatous tumors had a microscopic appearance identical to the deeper portions of conventional polypoid granuloma pyogenicum, a specific pathologic entity that can be recognized by its histologic features.

Pyogenic Granuloma (Lobular Capillary Hemangioma): A Clinicopathologic Study of 178 Cases

Pyogenic granuloma (lobular capillary hemangioma) is a common acquired vascular lesion of the skin and mucous membranes in the pediatric age group, and Histologic examination demonstrated normal numbers of mast cells, in contrast to increased mast cells characteristic of proliferative phase hemANGiomas.

[Giant gravidarum granuloma of the scalp].

The first case of a granuloma gravidarum of the scalp is described, which is reported more frequently in the skin than in the mucous membranes.

The full spectrum of presentation of HIV infection is still unknown, and unusual or unexpected presentations should arouse suspicion of underlying immunosuppression, especially in HIV endemic areas.

Lobular capillary hemangiomas: An epidemiologic report, with emphasis on cutaneous lesions.

Cutaneous lobular capillary hemangiomas were equally prevalent in male and female patients, and these affected females more than males by a ratio of 2:1, most commonly in the fourth decade of life.

Two cases of giant pyogenic granuloma of scalp

Two cases of giant pyogenic granuloma are presented, one, in a 28-year-old adult, presenting as a giant fluffy swelling of scalp and the other in a 11- year-old child, presentingAs a giant ulcerated globular swelling of the scalp.

The accurate, descriptive term, lobular capillary hemangioma (LCH), which usually presents as a spontaneous, painless, bleeding mass, is suggested to avoid confusion and focus on the intrinsic nature of PG.

Intravenous lobular capillary haemangioma: ultrasound and histology findings.

The ultrasound and histological findings of an intravenous lobular capillary haemangioma are described and it is suggested that the lesion may be associated with atypical mantle cell granuloma.
