Intramuscular Hemangioma in the Anterior Scalene Muscle Diagnosed by Core Needle Biopsy.

Cho JK, Cha W, Sung MW - Clin Exp Otorhinolaryngol (2015)

Bottom Line: Intramuscular hemangioma (IMH) is a rare, benign vascular lesion that frequently develops within skeletal muscles.Preoperatively, accurate diagnosis of IMH is often extremely difficult because of nonspecific clinical findings and the inaccuracy of fine-needle aspiration cytology.Here, we report a case of a 44-year-old man with a huge IMH in the anterior scalene muscle that was preoperatively diagnosed using ultrasonography-guided core needle biopsy, and was successfully treated based on preoperative clinical information.

ABSTRACT
Intramuscular hemangioma (IMH) is a rare, benign vascular lesion that frequently develops within skeletal muscles. Preoperatively, accurate diagnosis of IMH is often extremely difficult because of nonspecific clinical findings and the inaccuracy of fine-needle aspiration cytology. IMH is suspected in only 8% of preoperative diagnoses before surgical exploration. Here, we report a case of a 44-year-old man with a huge IMH in the anterior scalene muscle that was preoperatively diagnosed using ultrasonography-guided core needle biopsy, and was successfully treated based on preoperative clinical information.

Angiography and tumor embolization were planned 3 days before the elective operation. Angiography demonstrated a hypervascular mass fed by a branch of the right thyrocervical artery, and the mass was successfully embolized. (A) Anterior to posterior view, (B) lateral view.

Mentions: To prevent massive intraoperative bleeding, an angiography and tumor embolization were planned 2 days before the elective operation. The angiography demonstrated a hypervascular mass fed by a branch of the right thyrocervical artery, and the mass was successfully embolized (Fig. 4).
