The company also has preclinical programs in restoring endothelial cell barriers in cavernous angioma
and stroke, and programs in glaucoma.
Among the connective tissue tumours, angioma
is very common and nerve sheath tumours are seen less frequent, while others like Lipoma, Xanthomatous tumours and Histiocytic tumours are still rare.
(1) It is known that the initial stage (precursor lesion) of RAP, also called type 3 nv, involves the development of an angioma
(neovascular complex) originating from the deep capillary network (DCN) of the retina.
(CA) or senile angioma
is the most common type of acquired benign vascular proliferation which usually presents as nonblanching red papules on the acral and truncal areas .

Ophthalmology assessment revealed a lesion suggestive of a retinal hemangioblastoma (retinal angioma
) on the right eye (Figure 4).
Vascular malformations include slow-flow malformations (with venous, capillary and/or lymphatic components) and fast-flow malformations (with arterial components); while vascular neoplasms undergo mitosis and include such lesions as infantile hemangioma, congenital hemangioma, kaposiform hemangioendothelioma, tufted angioma
, hemangiopericytoma, and angiosarcoma .
Moreover, the patient was affected by the following comorbidities: essential hypertension, chronic gastritis, congenital facial angioma
treated with sclerotherapy, and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN1).
Magnetic resonance imaging showed high intense signal in T1 and T2 of the D10 vertebral body lesion with important enhancement after gadolinium injection which was in favor of vertebral angioma
. That was confirmed by histological findings of a scan guided biopsy of the lesion (Figure 4).

We report here on a patient with a littoral cell angioma
of the spleen who displayed a severe KMS with complex diagnosis.
