Glomus tumors are mesenchymal neoplasms derived from glomus bodies with rare presentations in the oral cavity. Glomus tumors present as a purple or pink vascular nodule or papule, sized <1 cm, and imitate vascular neoplasms such as hemangiopericytoma or hemangioma. Glomus tumors represent less than 2% of all benign soft tissue tumors. Only 27 cases of benign glomus tumors with oral cavity involvement have been reported to date. The most-reported oral tumors involved the lips (54.2%), followed by hard palate, gingiva, tongue, and buccal mucosa...

Hemangioendothelioma is a rare, locally aggressive vascular tumor, originating from soft tissue, bone, skin, and organs such as liver or lung and exceptionally the oral cavity. It is usually benign but can show variable grades of malignancy. Most of the cases of oral epithelioid hemangioendotheliomas are asymptomatic, and diagnosis is hampered by the fact that the histological features somewhat overlap with hemangioma and angiosarcoma, with epithelioid cells, intracytoplasmic vacuoles, low mitotic activity, and rarely necrosis...

Intramuscular hemangioma (IMH) is a rare vascular disease involving skeletal muscle, comprising only 0.8% of hemangiomas. About 10% to 15% of IMHs occur in the head and neck region, mostly involving the masseter muscle. IMH occurs mostly in childhood, but is often not found until unexpected enlargement, pain, or cosmetic asymmetry occurs in adulthood. Several non-surgical treatments including cryotherapy, sclerosant injection, and arterial ligature have been described, but complete surgical resection is the curative intervention...

Infantile hemangiomas (IHs) are the most common vascular tumors of infancy. While the majority regress without the need for intervention, approximately 10%, often site dependent, can cause serious complications and require treatment. IH complications can be categorized as life threatening, obstructive, ulcerative or disfiguring. Life threatening complications include airway and hepatic IHs. Functional complications obstructing vital structures or impairing function include periocular, nasal, labial, parotid, auricular, and breast IHs...

Cheilitis granulomatosa is a rare disease characterised by the recurrent labial swelling of one or both lips with the possibility of the condition to remain on a permanent basis. This kind of granulomatous, inflammatory disease may appear independently or be linked to a paralysis such as the facial and lingua plicata which then characteristic of the Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome. Classically, a non-necrotizing granulomatous inflammation is seen at histologic examination. Many treatments have been tried. But as its high recurrence rate, the results were often disappointing...

Hemangiomas are proliferative lesions characterized by increased endothelial cell turnover. Lip hemangiomas can distort lip anatomy and are at increased risk of ulceration and/or bleeding, which lead to impaired function and disfigurement. Surgery can provide active treatment but it can be problematic because vermilion tissue is unique and not found elsewhere on the body. Since there is no similar tissue that can easily be used for reconstructing missing vermilion, its preservation is essential for a satisfactory cosmetic result...

PURPOSE: Hemangiomas are the most common benign tumor of infancy, affecting females more than males. Lip hemangiomas are of particular concern because of their relatively increased risk to ulcerate during the proliferative period. Ulcerated hemangiomas of the lip can lead to increased scarring, loss of lip contour, and disfigurement. Most will require surgical correction to restore normal labial anatomy. METHODS: A retrospective chart review between 2004 and 2010 for surgically treated lip hemangiomas was performed...

Incontinentia pigmenti is a systemic disorder affecting the skin, teeth, eyes, nervous tissue, hair, nails, musculoskeletal system, and heart. We describe an 11-month-old girl with incontinentia pigmenti associated with a ventricular septal defect, left hemiatrophy, hemangiomas, an abnormal labial frenum, and spastic cerebral palsy manifested as left hemiplegia and developmental delay. We believe this patient illustrates that incontinentia pigmenti is a systemic disorder necessitating a multidisciplinary approach to management...

Three pediatric case studies (infant, toddler, and adolescent) using negative pressure wound treatment system (NPWS) in a children's hospital are described. Each child had complex surgical wounds and different goals for the therapy. The infant had an ulcerating labial hemangioma surgically removed, and the NPWS was used to expedite granulation tissue in preparation for a split-thickness skin graft. The critically ill toddler required abdominal fasciotomies for compartment syndrome, and the NPWS was applied to reduce interstitial abdominal edema and manage the excessive wound drainage...

Lip lesions are a common presentation to the pediatrician's office. These lesions are often benign in children, without significant functional morbidity. However, owing to the prominent placement of lips and their role in communication, lip lesions can be alarming to patients as well as to their parents. For these reasons the pediatrician has an important role in recognizing, diagnosing, and treating the various types of labial dermatoses that commonly present to a pediatric practice. Four of the most common lip lesions a pediatrician will see are herpes simplex/recurrent herpes labialis, impetigo, mucoceles, and hemangiomas...

Clinical and histopathological features were investigated in 43 cases of oral lobular capillary hemangiomas (LCH) with a special reference to characteristics of the vascular elements. The lesions affected females more than males by a ratio of 1:1.5. Average age of the patients was 52.7 years. The lesions involved the gingiva (n = 15), the tongue (n = 13), the labial mucosa (n = 10) and other sites. The lesions appeared usually as a pedunculated mass with ulceration; size of the lesions was up to 15 mm. Histologically, a lobular area and an ulcerative area were distinguished...

After defining vascular malformations and tumors, the authors approach specific problems of these lesions involving the lips. Careful planning and assessment are necessary throughout the clinical course and evolution. Therapeutic management concern the vascular anomaly but the functional, cosmetic and psychological repercussions as well. The rules of surgical treatment are discussed in this labial location. Capillary malformations can be treated by pulsed dye laser for the skin involvement, but sometimes by reconstructive surgery in case of soft tissue and bony overgrowth...
