Other radiologic techniques such as barium enema and gastrointestinal follow-through may be supplementary, but do not generally provide more information, except for the diagnosis of “diffuse intestinal hemangiomatosis”.

A registry exists known as The International Cavernous Angioma Patient Registry collects information from patients diagnosed with cavernoma in order to facilitate discovery of non-invasive treatments.

Four types of clinical presentation were seen in the 36 patients: Coloanal sleeve anastomosis in the treatment of diffuse cavernous haemangioma of the rectum: Although alternative therapies such as sclerotherapy, criotherapy or argon fulguration have 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.

In Lombardi et al.

We report three cases of this condition, describing findings of diffusion-weighted imaging in this kind of lesion for the first time in literature. We suggest that the entity of angiogliomas represents a general spectrum of angiomatous neoplasms that include gliomatous tumors, in the majority low-grade gliomas, associated with a major vascular component. Micrograph of a cavernous liver hemangioma.

The gliomatous nature of the tumor was pathologically obvious, although in some points of angiomaa tumoral mass it was nearly darkened from this particular architecture of the vascular component Fig 2abc. Councillmann in 3 was the first to report the name of “angiogliomas” describing a cerebellar tumor with a huge vascular component.

Asymptomatic lesions may not require treatment but may need to be monitored for any change in the size. In his medical history, besides an angilma smoking habit, a previous vascular hamartoma in the rectum-sigma stands out. In all patients, MRI revealed well-delimited right para-sellar lesions, uniformly isointense in T1-weighted images and hyperintense in T2- T2- and FLAIR-weighted images, brightly enhancing after intra-vascular infusion of gadolinium.

The peak age of presentation was in the fourth decade. Overall familial disease is responsible for one third to one half of cases. During surgery, an intracerebral mass with thrombosed vessels and considerable vascular lakes was found. As was the case in our patient, a large number of these malformations are near missed or falsely diagnosed, since symptoms are attributed to internal hemorrhoids, polyps, ulcerative colitis, etc.

Introduction Councillmann in 3 was the first to report the name of “angiogliomas” describing a cerebellar tumor with a huge vascular component. On magnetic resonance angiography MRA of cerebral vessels with 3D-TOF technique, performed in patients 2 and 3, the right-sided components of the angiomw of Willis were laterally displaced by the cavernous angiomas, without any impairment of blood flow Fig 2. The lesions are often well circumscribed with a glial plane between the lesion and normal cord.

A redefination of the “angioglioma”.

According to the opinion of most ahgioma, 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. Report of two cases and literature review of so-called angiogliomas.

Hemangioma cavernoso difuso del recto: una causa atípica de hemorragia digestiva baja

The mass was isointense in diffusion-weighted images in our only patient in which it was performed, and, to our knowledge, this paper is the first so far to report findings of this technique in cavernous angioma of the cqvernoso sinus.


Received 19 Marchreceived in final form 9 June From Diagnosis to Treatment”. Other techniques such as selective angiography, barium enema, gastrointestinal transit, and upper-tract endoscopy may be supplementary and help locate more lesions along the gastrointestinal tract.

Diffuse cavernous hemangioma of the rectum: Gradient-echo sequences may be useful to reveal hemorrhagic component. Interface between vascular component in cavernos case antioma hyalinized ectasic walls and the glial neoplasia. The gliomatous tumors of the brain. Case 1 A year-old girl was admitted in our department for progressive bilateral facial palsy.

Coloanal anastomosis requires a wide mucosectomy of the rectum, keeping a muscular “sleeve” of rectal wall 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. University Hospital Virgen de la Arrixaca. In cavernous hemangioma of the eye, patients report an onset of symptoms from 6 months to 2 years.

Acta Neurochir ; Although, Rubinstein 15 accepted the term angioglioma; in a more recent publication 16 he suggested the restriction of the term angiogliomas to denote a mixed tumor composed of an hemangioblastoma and astrocitoma.
