Method. The case presented with intraoral submucosal hemangioma of the cheek was treated by intralesional injection of aethoxysklerol 3% diluted in water for. An otherwise healthy year-old female patient had painless swelling in her left buccal mucosa. No precipitating factors were identified. Pathological analysis. Althought hemangioma is considered one of the most common soft tissue tumors of the head and neck [2], it is relatively rare in the oral cavity.

Capillary hemangioma as a rare benign tumor of the oral cavity: a case report

Occasionally, older individuals are affected [ 23 ]. The effective depth of penetration of PDL is minimal to a depth of around 1. Based on medical history and clinical examination, the lesion was diagnosed as submucosal hemangioma of the cheek.

It was initially small in size, gradually increased and stabilized after weeks till the present size. There are many clinical features of capillary hemangioma such as asymmetry of the face, spontaneous bleeding, pain, mobility of teeth, blanching of tissue, pulsation, expansion of bone, paresthesia, early exfoliation of primary teeth, delayed eruption, root resorption, and missing teeth [ 145716 ].

Human saphenous vein in vitro model for studying the action of intraorral solutions. This classification is based on the predominant type of vascular channels. Intraoral lesion Yemangioma here to view. Discussion Hemangiomas are a common soft tissue tumor that often congenital or develop in the neonatal period and grow rapidly.


Case Reports in Medicine

No precipitating factors were identified. They may occur in the oral and maxillofacial region including gingiva, palatal mucosa, lips, jawbone, and salivary glands [ 157101516 ]. Capillary and cavernous hemangiomas are defined according to the size of vascular spaces [ 26 ].

Acute infections, such as Ludwig angina or cellulitis, which may derive from an odontogenic focus of infection, osteomyelitis, were not considered in the intfaoral diagnosis because of the chronic nature of the condition. The case described here demonstrates that there has been no subsequent hemorrhage or other evidence of recurrence. Laser treatment is currently used for thin, superficial lesions, ulcerated hemangiomas, and residual erythema and telangiectasias.

Microscopically, short, blunted papillary projections with a hyalinized core are associated with thrombotic or clot material and are covered by a single layer of plump endothelial cells that lack intraorap, pleomorphism, or significantly elevated mitotic activity, unlike angiosarcomas.

Cavernous hemangiomas consist of deep, irregular, dermal blood-filled channels [ 2 ]. Florid extravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia Masson’s pseudoangiosarcoma presenting as a soft tissue sarcoma.

After clinical and radiological diagnosis, the patient was planned under conscious sedation. In addition, the periodontal surgical management of hemangiomas should be performed with caution because the tissues may bleed profusely intraoperatively and postoperatively. The occurrence of hemangioma with its primary location on gingival tissues seems to be extremely rare. Submucosally lesion was identified and dissected bluntly from rest of the tissue, particularly in the region of masseter muscle.

Positivity for factor VIII in the papillary projections. Since there was no dysplasia in the endothelial lining, the possibility of angiosarcoma histologically was also ruled out. Based on the clinical presentation of the swelling, it appeared that the mass originated from the underlying mesenchymal tissues as opposed to the overlying mucosa.

The majority of haemangioma involve the head and neck. Therefore, laser and cryotherapy are not commonly used in treatment of haemangiomas due to scarring or hyperpigmentation, skin atrophy, and slight depression of the skin and due to high cost [ 3940 ]. They hemangikma firm and rubbery in texture.

Sclerotherapy as an alternative treatment of oral vascular lesions. If superficial lesions are not an esthetic problem and are not subject to masticatory trauma, they may be left untreated [ 3 ].
