GUIJARRO-MARTINEZ, Raquel et al. Primary intraosseous venous malformation of the zygoma: update in diagnostic criteria. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2013, vol.35, n.4, pp.170-174. ISSN 2173-9161.

Vascular anomalies include two well-differentiated conditions that are nevertheless often confused in the scientific literature: haemangiomas and vascular malformations. Primary intraosseous involvement of the zygoma is particularly rare. Moreover, most reported cases of zygomatic involvement have been categorised as “haemangioma” without appropriate diagnostic criteria. The authors describe a case of intraosseous venous malformation of the zygoma and discuss the specific clinical, histological and immunohistochemical criteria of vascular anomalies that lead to a correct diagnosis and subsequent effective treatment.

Keywords : Vascular anomaly; Vascular malformation; Venous malformation; Haemangioma; Zygoma; Malar.
