Extensive Cavernous Angioma. Presented by Dr. Gilmour.
M. P., a woman, aged 41, unmarried, a teacher, said that when she was about 6 weeks old a dilatation of vessels had been noted on her right hand, and that it had gradually spread up the arm. Several operations were performed, without improving the condition. In 1909, she had an operation on the forearm; in 1910, on the upper arm; in 1912, on both arm and forearm; in 1917, on the back of the hand and on the thumb; in 1920 and in 1923, gelatin injections in the arm.When presented, she showed numerous cavernous angiomas in small areas from the right hand up to the shoulder.
Dr. Satenstein: I recall a much more extensive case in which there was a lesion about the size of a small orange on the palm of the hand. A surgeon attempted to remove it.
