Resumen

CHERCOLES CAZATE, Lilia Esperanza; SANCHEZ DE LA GUARDIA, Dalia  y  DIAZ SOCARRAS, Félix. Cavernous Hemangioma. Rev Cubana Angiol Cir Vasc [online]. 2021, vol.22, n.1, e206.  Epub 15-Abr-2021. ISSN 1682-0037.

Cavernous hemangioma is a benign neoplasm of blood vessels. This work aimed at presenting the case of a giant cavernous hemangioma treated with propranolol. The diagnosis was made by physical examination, duplex Doppler sonography, and complementary tests of interest. For deciding the therapeutic approach, the patient was assessed by several specialists from different medical fields, such as oncology, dermatology, orthopedics, pediatrics, and angiology. Once the treatment was established, a follow-up was carried out for four weeks and then monthly. The outcome, after twenty-two months, was the hemangioma disappearance. Propranolol in giant cavernous hemangioma should be the treatment of early choice for a satisfactory evolution and to avoid complications.

Palabras clave : hemangioma; cavernoma; propranolol; benign neoplasm arising from the vascular tissue.
