Quick Summary:

  • Hemangiomas are benign malformation of blood vessels that can occur in several tissues such as the brain, kidney, liver, lung, skin, and nasal cavity
  • Verrucous Hemangioma (VH) is a rare and uncommon type of hemangioma that presents features of either a capillary hemangioma or a cavernous hemangioma. These hemangiomas usually have a congenital origin, but may be seen during early childhood too
  • The cause for development of Verrucous Hemangioma is not yet well understood. No specific risk factors have also been identified
  • Verrucous Hemangiomas typically grow to large sizes over a period of time. The skin over the lesions may rupture and bleed. With time, the skin over the lesions are known to harden and thicken (a condition called hyperkeratotis)
  • While Verrucous Hemangiomas do not present any significant signs and symptoms, they may be longstanding. The treatment options include removal of the tumor through surgery
  • The prognosis of Verrucous Hemangioma is good with suitable treatment. But, many are known to reappear following their removal
