Surgical management of intracranial capillary hemangiomas in children: report of 2 cases.
Two cases of intracranial capillary hemangiomas (ICHs) occurring in children are presented to highlight the surgical challenges encountered with these extremely rare lesions. The author describes their clinical presentation, preoperative imaging features, intraoperative findings, and operative management. The pertinent literature is reviewed. Recommendations for preoperative planning and intraoperative management are made based on the author's experience and the literature for when ICH is considered in the differential diagnosis and encountered intraoperatively.
