- The angiomas are frequent tumors encountered
particularly in infants and children. It is probably
not a true neoplasm but rather a remnant of fetal
tissue and often referred as a type of hamartoma.
This study was based on 448 cases that were examined
and diagnosed as hemangiomas or lymphangiomas
at the Department of Pathology. Seoul National University
Hospital during a period of 20 years beginning
from the year of 1960.
A total of 448 angiomas was classified into 274
hemangiomas and 174 lymphangiomas. The hemangiomas
were again divided into 128 capillary hemangiomas,
72 cavernous hemangiomas. 9 venous heman~
giomas, 16 mixed capillary-cavernous hemangiomas And 49 vascular malformations. One hundred and seventy
four lymphangiomas were comprised of 60 cavernous
Iymphangimas, 89 cystic lymphangiomas and
25 vascular malformations. Not a single case of
capillary lymphangioma was seen.
There were different features to distinguish cystic
hygromas from cavernous lymphangiomas, and these
tumors had specific site predilections.
In capillary hemangiomas it was usual to find
thick-walled vessels presumably representing feeding
arteries and draining veins. They were not components
of malformation in most cases. However,
rarely anomalous arteriovenous malformation or
other vascular malformation were seen around the
main mass of capillary hemangiomas.
