3-4) In our patient the calcified lesion represented phleboliths
often seen in venous malformations.
Five out of seven patients (71%) had evidence on examination and imaging of phleboliths
within the mass.
Assessment of the clinical utility of the rim and comet-tail signs in differentiating ureteral stones from phleboliths
Plain films help to differentiate between phleboliths
and calculi by showing a radiolucent centre in 66% cases.
Vascular lesion of the masseter presenting with phlebolith
Hemangioma with phlebolith
has been reported in parotid and submandibular glands, mentalis muscle and buccal regions.
or pathologic (calcified lymph nodes, tonsilloliths, phleboliths
within the parotid gland are exceedingly rare.
11) By definition, these multiple enchondromas are associated with soft tissue swelling and calcifications and phleboliths
, which are typical of hemangiomas.
The preliminary image also enables identification of radiopaque structures in the pelvis area that may confuse interpretation of cystographic images, such as bony abnormalities of the pelvis, air or stool in the bowel, clips from previous surgical procedures, brachytherapy seeds in the prostate, ventriculoperitoneal shunt tubing, and phleboliths
(see Figure 6).
Zachariades et al reported two cases in which phleboliths
were associated with masseteric muscle hypertrophy.
This suggests calcified phleboliths
or fluid void in abnormal vessels.
