Malignant proliferating angioendotheliomatosis

Abstract: A 48-year-old man had fever and generalized asymptomatic erythematous telangiectatic plaques and patches. Skin biopsy specimens confirmed the diagnosis of malignant angioendotheliomatosis. Local irradiation therapy induced a temporary remission. Chemotherapy was administered without altering the course of the disorder. Limited autopsy revealed visceral as well as cutaneous involvement.

“…Articles reporting on a total of 224 patients with IVL were reviewed. In articles before 1986 and many thereafter no differentiation is made by the authors between B‐cell and T‐cell lymphoma (105 patients) 1–27,29,30,36,49,51,53,77,92 . Beginning in 1986, authors increasingly included immunohistochemical data of the patients studied by them 19,20,23,25 .…”

“…Intravascular lymphoma (IVL) was described first in 1959 by Pfleger and Tappeiner under the designation ‘Angioendotheliomatosis proliferans systemisata’ 1 . The disease was for long considered to be a malignant neoplasm of endothelial differentiation 2–18 but immunohistochemical studies finally revealed the lymphocytic differentiation of the proliferations of atypical cells within vessels 19,20 . Histopathological findings are stereotypical and consist of infiltrates of large blasts within vessels of the superficial and deep plexus in the dermis sometimes also involving vessels in the upper part of the subcutaneous fat (Fig.…”

“…Angiotropic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a rare systemic condition in which small blood vessels throughout the body are occluded by cytologically malignant mononuclear cells, usually in (Kauh et al, 1980;Keahey et al, 1982;Bots, 1974;Ansbacher et al, 198 1) but the clinical features are diverse and many cases are only diagnosed at autopsy. The majority of reports have concentrated on the histopathological features of this disorder and in particular the controversy regarding its histogenesis.…”
