Spinal hemangiomas are benign tumors that are most commonly seen in the mid-back thoracic and lower back lumbar. Hemangiomas most often appear in adults between the ages of 30 and Most cases show no symptoms. Symptomatic hemangiomas represent less than one percent of all hemangiomas, and are more common in women than in men. If left untreated, symptomatic hemangiomas can cause serious neurological effects. At UPMC, we treat hemangiomas with surgical removal resection of the tumor or the affected vertebra, and radiation therapy to treat pain.

Hemangiomas are benign tumors that develop from blood vessels. Hemangiomas of the skin are often visible as red, raised birthmarks that generally fade on their own. Hemangiomas can also form on internal organs. Spinal hemangiomas usually develop in the bones of the spine, known as vertebrae. Most vertebral hemangiomas are located in either the thoracic upper- to mid- or lumbar lower spine. Only rarely are they found in the cervical spine neck. In fact, they are the most common benign spinal tumors.
Acquired capillary hemangioma of the eyelid is very uncommon in adults. To our knowledge, only eight such cases have been reported in the literature till date. We report the case of a year-old female with acquired capillary hemangioma of the left lower eyelid treated by cutting diathermy followed by reconstruction of the cutaneous and cartilaginous defect. This patient had a history of a similar lesion in the left malar region treated 5 years back.
Hemangiomas, or infantile hemangiomas, are noncancerous growths of blood vessels. They usually grow for a period of time and then subside without treatment. However, some hemangiomas may open and bleed or ulcerate. This may be painful. Depending on their size and location, they may be disfiguring.
