Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To investigate the indication and result in hemangioma in oral and maxillofacial region with Pingyangmycin injection.

METHODS:

1282 patients (554 males and 728 females) with hemangioma in oral and maxillofacial region have been treated in our hospital during the 10-year period from May 1990 to March 1999. The patients range between 0.5-84 years old. Lip, cheek and tongue were usually involved. 1211 patients were treated with injection of Pingyangmycin(about 0.89 mg/ml) and dexamethasone (about 0.55 mg/ml), 1 time/1-2 weeks.

RESULTS:

The curative rates of cavernous hemangioma and strawberry hemangioma were 93.87% and 84.90%, but that of plexiform hemangioma was 22.22% and those of portwine stain and central hemangioma of the jaws were 0%, respectively. Serious complications associated with Pingyangmycin injection, such as pulmonary fibrosis were not seen.

CONCLUSION:

Injection of Pingyangmycin is selective primary method for cavernous and strawberry hemangioma treatment.
