Answer

Cavernous hemangiomata and hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasias can be loosely added to this group. Cavernous hemangiomata are vascular tumors composed of large dilated blood vessels, often containing large amounts of blood. They can be found in the brain, skin, subcutaneous tissue, and many abdominal viscera, particularly the liver, spleen, and pancreas. [57]
