THE INJECTION TREATMENT OF CAVERNOUS HEMANGIOMAS: REPORT OF A CASE AND HISTORICAL REVIEW

THE INJECTION TREATMENT OF CAVERNOUS HEMANGIOMAS: REPORT OF A CASE AND HISTORICAL REVIEW Abstract Cavernous hemangiomas often present difficult problems from the standpoint of treatment.

Abstract

Abstract Cavernous hemangiomas often present difficult problems from the standpoint of treatment. Radium therapy and surgical intervention are no doubt the treatments of choice in most cases. However, patients may be reluctant to undergo the risks and inconveniences of such treatment, and often there are cases in which the size or location of the tumor prevents the use of these methods. The following case is reported because of remarkable success obtained by the injection of sclerosing substances, such as are used in the treatment for varicose veins.

Traub, complaining of a tumor in the region of the left ankle. This had been present since infancy, but during the last four years had increased in size and had become superficially References 1.
