Von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL), also known as Familial cerebello retinal angiomatosis, is a rare genetic disorder characterised by visceral cysts and benign tumours with potential for subsequent malignant transformation.
3],[4],[5],[6] Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS), also called encephalotrigeminal angiomatosis, is a neurocutaneous disorder with angiomas that involve the leptomeninges and the skin of the face, typically in the ophthalmic (V1) and maxillary (V2) distributions of the trigeminal nerve.
Clinical characteristics of ocular angiomatosis in von Hippel-Lindaudisease and correlation with germline mutation.
This condition may occur together with haemangiomatosis of the liver or it may occur as a manifestation of systemic angiomatosis or less commonly is confined to the spleen.
Trench fever (Bartonella quintana Schmincke infection) is transmitted by the human body louse (Pediculus humanus humanus Linnaeus), and manifests clinically as nonspecific febrile illness, bacillary angiomatosis, or endocarditis.
henselae infection can be particularly severe for patients with immunocompromising conditions, such as AIDS, in whom vascular proliferative lesions (bacillary angiomatosis and bacillary peliosis) may develop (5).

henselae is the aetiological agent of cat-scratch disease, bacillary angiomatosis, meningo-encephalitis and chronic bacteraemia.
Cats associated with cat-scratch disease are highly likely to be bacteremic with Bartonella henselae; however, even 28% of cats without known associations to cat-scratch disease or bacillary angiomatosis have Bartonella henselae bacteremia [7].
Other differential diagnoses of AHE includes vascular tumors and tumor-like conditions of blood vessels, such as angiosarcoma, cutaneous epithelioid angiomatous nodule, bacillary angiomatosis, and epithelioid hemangioendothelioma.
In the terminal villi we observed focal stromal edema, capillary angiomatosis, and thinning of syncytium.
Infection may result in bacteremia (presence of bacteria in the blood), myocarditis (inflammation of the middle layer of the heart wall), peliosis hepatis (a vascular condition which results in blood-filled sacs in the liver), neuroretinitis (inflammation of the neural retina and optic nerve), bacillary angiomatosis (a proliferation of blood vessels leading to tumorlike masses), enlarged lymph nodes, and fevers.
