Vascular lesions constitute the majority of the hamartomas presenting to us, and approximately 50 percent of these haemangiomas present in the head and neck region. The female to male incidence is approximately 2 to 1 and the capillary type haemangiomas are the most common, but in the most severe cases a mixture of capillary and cavernous types is found. Involvement of the face, particular the lips, carries greater psycho-social stigmata than involvement of other areas and early treatment is important to limit lesions at this site. In contrast to haemangiomas occurring in other anatomical sites, those found on the lips or in the perioral region are unlikely to involute spontaneously and often persist indefinitely. Early surgical management is indicated, despite the availability of other modalities of treatment such as steroid therapy, radiotherapy, sclerosing agents and laser therapy. 15 cases in which surgery was the mainstay of management are presented. In 6 cases, the initial management included steroid injections (triamcinolone 40mg/ml and 20mg/ml). The results of selected cases are shown and discussed.(AU)

The clinical, histological and immunohistochemical features of the first three cases of mammary hamartoma diagnosed at the University of the West Indies are reported. These tumours are innocuous and under-recognized although the mammographic features are characteristic. With increased utilization of this test in breast cancer detection in our region, it is likely that more of these legions will be identified. (AU)

A study of selected examples from a series of 42 cartilage-containing tumors of the lung support the hypothesis that intrapulmonary hamartomas and chondromas and endobranchial hamartomas and chondromas are the same lesion and are neoplasms that arise in the connective tissue of the bronchial walls. The apparent differences in the appearance of these neoplasms are due to their site of origin. i.e., whether they arise in large or small bronchi, and their direction of growth, i.e., whether they grow into or away from the lumen of the bronchus of origin. They should all be referred to as cartilage containing tumors of the lung and bronchi. (Summary)
