A Case for Diagnosis (Lymphangioendothelioma? Angioma?). Presented by Dr. Fred Wise.
W. C., a baby aged 3 weeks, was registered at the Skin and Cancer Unit of the New York Post-Graduate Medical School and Hospital on Dec. 20, 1938, with a lesion on the left buttock of two weeks' duration.On the midarea of the left buttock there appeared, about a week after birth, a hemispherical tumor about the size of a golf ball. The edges were sharply outlined and the surface adherent to the overlying skin, but the mass was movable with the surrounding normal tissue. Its color was a faint bluish pink; otherwise the overlying skin was unaltered. On palpation a firm, nonfluctuating and non-tender mass was felt. The mother states that the tumor has seemed to be enlarging rather rapidly in the past two weeks.
