Effect of continuous
positive airway pressure therapy on a large hemangioma complicated with
obstructive sleep apnea syndrome: a case report
Hemangiomas involving the upper
airway can be an uncommon cause of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.
A 26-year-old Caucasian man with a
known history of a large hemangioma of his head and neck presented with
sleep-disordered breathing to the sleep unit of our hospital. Severe
obstructive sleep apnea syndrome was revealed on polysomnography. Nasal
continuous positive airway pressure was implemented effectively, reducing
daytime hypersomnolence and significantly improving sleep parameters. After
three years of adherent use, the patient remains in a good condition and the
hemangioma is stable.
Application of continuous positive
airway pressure can be an effective treatment for patients with obstructive
sleep apnea syndrome complicated with vascular tumors. Periodic follow-up of
these patients is necessary, as little is known about the long-term effects of
continuous positive airway pressure therapy.
