The differential diagnosis of EAF is broad and includes reactive conditions (granulomatosis with polyangiitis, Churg-Strauss syndrome, Kimura disease, angiolymphoid hyperplasia
with eosinophilia, granuloma faciale, erythema elevatum diutinum), and neoplastic lesions (angiofibroma, schwannoma, fibroma, fibromatosis).
Kimura's disease: a clinico-pathological study of 21 cases and its distinction from angiolymphoid hyperplasia
Based on the history, clinical examination, and histopathology, the patient was diagnosed with angiolymphoid hyperplasia
with eosinophilia (ALHE).
Clinically, ALMs must be differentiated from other benign tumors of the auricle, namely, hemangiomas, glomus tumors, epidermoid cysts, auricular pseudocysts, angiolymphoid hyperplasia
with eosinophilia, and neuro(fibro)mas.
Background and Objective: Angiolymphoid hyperplasia
with eosinophilia (ALHE) is a rare, benign, vasoproliferative entity of unknown etiology.
with eosinophilia (AHE) has an unknown pathogenesis but is considered a reactive phenomenon, possibly in response to or in association with an underlying vascular malformation.
with eosinophilia (ALHE), sometimes called epithelioid hemangioma, is a benign vascular tumor.
-- with eosinophilia (ALHE) Cat-scratch disease Nodes often show central necrosis.
KD can be confused clinically and histologically with angiolymphoid hyperplasia
with eosinophilia (ALHE), also known as epitheloid hemangioma, which is a rare but distinctive vascular tumor typically occurring in women.
Observations concerning the pathogenesis of epithelioid hemangioma (angiolymphoid hyperplasia
Wells and Whimster first reported it as angiolymphoid hyperplasia
with eosinophilia (ALHE) in 1969 and Rosai et al.
It has been implicated that HHV-8 may be associated with some human diseases including primary effusion lymphoma, a rare subtype of B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) , multicentric Castleman disease , angiosarcoma , angiolymphoid hyperplasia
with eosinophilia , sarcoidosis , squamous cell carcinoma , pityriasis rosea , and multiple myeloma (MM) .
