    Title Kaposiform Hemangioendothelioma Without Kasabach-merritt Phenomenon.
    Date May 2006
    Journal Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology

    Kasabach-Merritt phenomenon is a serious coagulopathy associated with kaposiform hemangioendothelioma (KHE), tufted angioma, and possibly other vascular neoplasms. KHE presenting in the absence of Kasabach-Merritt phenomenon is rare, although tufted angioma frequently occurs without thrombocytopenia. We retrospectively reviewed 10 cases of KHE without Kasabach-Merritt phenomenon. The tumors appeared as soft tissue masses with the overlying skin being either normal, erythematous, or violaceous. There were no radiologic or microscopic differences in noncoagulopathic KHE as compared with coagulopathic KHE. Evidence of platelet trapping and hemosiderin deposition was seen histologically, despite normal serum platelet levels. All KHE were less than 8 cm in diameter, suggesting that tumors that grow no larger than this size are less likely to trap platelets in sufficient quantity to cause thrombocytopenia. Our series confirms that KHE appears with a wide spectrum of behavior and response to treatment. The decision as to whether or not to treat a noncoagulopathic KHE should be based on the size and location of the tumor and the possible side effects of therapy.
