Resumen

ESTIGARRIBIA MALLADA, R, PERALTA OCAMPOS, A y ALONSO GUTIERREZ, R. Hemangioma Cavernoso del Mesocolon Transverso. Reporte de un Caso Clínico Radiológico. An. Fac. Cienc. Méd. (Asunción), jun. 2010, vol.43, no.1, p.57-60. ISSN 1816-8949.

The hemangioma was first described in 1892. It is a benign congenital vascular malformation that rarely affects the large intestine and when it does, it usually settles in the rectosigmoid and anal canal. It may cause lower GI bleeding which is presented as a painless rectal bleeding. According to Head et al, until 1973, only 50 cases of hemangioma confined to the colon had been described in the literature. No case of mesocolon compromise has been reported in our environment. The occurrence of the first case of hemangioma of the mesocolon in our environment and the lack of statistics and information about this disease has prompted us to inform about this fact and take the opportunity to review on the subject with the available information. Here is a case of a 20 year old woman with a tumor at the level of the transverse mesocolon, treated surgically. The histopathological examination revealed a cavernous hemangioma. The most important aspects of this type of tumor is discussed with emphasis on imaging.

Palabras claves: Cavernous hemangioma; Transverse mesocolon; Diagnostic Imaging.
