OBJECTIVE In 1940 Kasabach and Merritt described an infant with a vascular anomaly, extensive purpura, and thrombocytopenia; they called his lesion "capillary hemangioma." Hemangioma is a benign tumor that grows in infancy and is characterized by proliferation of endothelial cells and regression during childhood. Although Kasabach-Merritt syndrome (KMS) is frequently mentioned as a possible complication of hemangioma, our experience suggests that the anatomic vascular lesion underlying the… CONTINUE READING

Blood VesselIs primary anatomic site of diseaseTufted angioma of skin
Histologically , none had the typical " capillary , " involuting type of hemangioma of infancy : they exhibited either a tufted angioma or a kaposiform hemangioendothelioma pattern ; all specimens also contained numerous abnormal lymphatic - like vessels ; lymphatic malformation was the major component in two patients .
This is a different vascular tumor with a resemblance pathologically to either tufted angioma or kaposiform hemangioendothelioma in association with lymphatic - like vessels .
