Cavernous Hemangioma of the Ovary.
Choong Hak Park
Hemangioma of the ovary is very rare benign tumor and it is surprising that only about 40 examples have been reported. It is so rare that there is no report in Korean Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. There are both benign and malignant lesions of various histologic types in pure mesenchymal tumors of the ovary. Hemangioma of the ovary is benign tumor of vascular origin in this pure mesenchymal tumors of the ovary. Hemangioma of the ovary is considered either a hamartomatous malformation or a true neoplasm and may be associated with hemangiomas in other parts of the genital tract and with hemangiomatosis. Nearly all ovarian hemangiomas show histologically a cavernous or a mixed cavernous-capillary pattern with large vascular spaces. The hemangiomas are usually unilateral and asymptomatic but associated findings may include abdominal swelling and awareness due to the large mass, acute abdominal pain from torsion, ascites, and thrombocytopenia. I have experienced a very rare case of cavernous hemangioma with calcification in the right ovary, combined with mature cystic teratoma in the left ovary in a 22-year-old woman and report it with brief review of literatures.
