Summary of "Intraluminal capillary hemangioma of the foot presenting clinically as a neuroma: A case report."

Capillary hemangiomas are rarely seen in the foot, especially in the deeper soft tissue compartment. If left untreated, they can give rise to benign soft-tissue tumors. A rare case of a capillary hemangioma on the right dorsal medial midfoot that, because of its location adjacent to the saphenous nerve, mimicked the signs and symptoms of a neuroma. In addition, the patient had a history of previous surgery for neuroma excision at the same location. Despite the strong suggestion of another recurrence of a neuroma, a careful workup, including the use of MRI and multidisciplinary consultation was implemented to rule out a possible malignancy. Its nature was confirmed by careful biopsy and histopathological findings prior to surgical resection. This case illustrates how a benign vascular lesion could elicit nerve-related pain in the foot and should be distinguished from malignant tumors, such as soft tissue sarcoma, prior to surgical planning.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A dull red, firm, dome-shaped hemangioma, sharply demarcated from surrounding skin, usually located on the head and neck, which grows rapidly and generally undergoes regression and involution without scarring. It is caused by proliferation of immature capillary vessels in active stroma, and is usually present at birth or occurs within the first two or three months of life. (Dorland, 27th ed)

A vascular malformation of developmental origin characterized pathologically by ectasia of superficial dermal capillaries, and clinically by persistent macular erythema. In the past, port wine stains have frequently been termed capillary hemangiomas, which they are not; unfortunately this confusing practice persists: HEMANGIOMA, CAPILLARY is neoplastic, a port-wine stain is non-neoplastic. Port-wine stains vary in color from fairly pale pink to deep red or purple and in size from a few millimeters to many centimeters in diameter. The face is the most frequently affected site and they are most often unilateral. (From Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 5th ed, p483)

A nerve inflammation in the foot caused by chronic compression of the plantar nerve between the METATARSAL BONES.

A disorder of the skin, the oral mucosa, and the gingiva, that usually presents as a solitary polypoid capillary hemangioma often resulting from trauma. It is manifested as an inflammatory response with similar characteristics to those of a granuloma.

Devices used to support or align the foot structure, or to prevent or correct foot deformities.
