Kasabach-Merritt phenomenon is a rare disorder that affects males and females equally The diagnosis is most often made during infancy but older children have  ‎Signs & Symptoms · ‎Related Disorders. Kasabach–Merritt syndrome (KMS) is a potentially life-threatening coagulopathy characterized by enlarging hemangioma with severe thrombocytopenia.[1] KMS is associated with kaposiform hemangioendothelioma (KHE), tufted angiomas and rarely with congenital hemangiomas (CHs).[2] Almost cases have been reported in the. The Kasabach-Merritt syndrome (KMS) was first described in in a male infant with a large, rapidly enlarging discolored lesion on his thigh.

Kasabach–Merritt syndrome with large cutaneous vascular tumors

Intravenous steroid therapy was initially effective in 6 patients of which 3 relapsed and ineffective in The 11 kasabach merritt syndrome with a poor response to steroids and the 3 who relapsed underwent arterial embolization therapy, which was effective in 9 patients of which 1 relapsedineffective in 4, and discontinued before completion in 1.

Subsequently, four patients kasabach merritt syndrome whom arterial embolization therapy was ineffective and one with relapse were treated with vincristine. This was effective in four patients, and the other died of disseminated intravascular coagulation.

Steroid therapy was effective in It is a different vascular tumor with a resemblance pathologically to either tufted angioma or kaposiform hemangioendothelioma in association with lymphatic-like vessels.

Thus, in KMS it appears not only that the vascular anomaly triggers platelet trapping and consumption but that platelet activation inside these lesions kasabach merritt syndrome the growth of a cellular tumor component. Szlachetka reviewed the approximately reported cases of KMS and discussed the pathophysiology, clinical kasabach merritt syndrome, differential diagnosis, and treatment modalities of the disorder.

They usually present in young infants, less than three months of age, but have rarely been reported in older children. These tumors occur in the extremities, chest, kasabach merritt syndrome, abdomen and pelvis. They infiltrate across tissue plans and can be aggravated by interventions, infection and trauma.

It is believed to be secondary to sequestration or trapping of platelets into the tumor. Management[ edit ] Management of KMS, particularly in severe cases, can be complex and require the joint effort of multiple subspecialists.

This is a rare disease with no consensus kasabach merritt syndrome guidelines or large randomized controlled trials to guide therapy. Supportive care[ edit ] Patient with KMS can be extremely ill and may need intensive care.
