angi-, angio-, angei-, -angium +

(Greek > Latin: [receptacle], vessel, often a blood vessel; "covered by a seed or vessel", a seed vessel; a learned borrowing from Greek meaning "vessel", "container")

angiomatosis
A diseased state of the vessels with the formation of multiple angiomas.
angiomatous
Of the nature of or resembling angiomas.
angiomegaly
Enlargement of blood vessels, causing swelling, especially of the eyelids.
angiometer
An instrument formerly used for measuring the diameter or tension of a blood vessel.
angiomyocardiac
Relating to the blood vessels and the cardiac muscle.
angiomyofibroma
A markedly vascular leiomyoma, apparently arising from the smooth muscle of blood vessels.

Leiomyoma refers to benign uterine tumors also referred to as uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids can cause pelvic pain and irregular vaginal bleeding in some females.

angiomyolipoma
A benign tumor containing vascular, adipose, and muscle elements; it occurs most often as a renal tumor with smooth muscle elements (more correctly called angiolipoleiomyoma) usually in association with tuberous sclerosis, and is considered to be a hamartoma (a benign tumor-like nodule composed of an overgrowth of mature cells and tissues that normally occur in the affected part but with disorganization and often with one element predominating).
angiomyoma
A tumor made up of elements of
  • angioma, a benign tumor made up of blood or lymph vessels;
  • myoma, a benign tumor of the muscle tissue;
  • sarcoma, a malignant tumor that begins growing in connective tissue; such as, muscle, bone, fat, or cartilage.
angiomyoneuroma
An obsolete term for glomus tumor (a benign but painful tumor).

A blue-red, extremely painful paraganglioma involving a glomeriform arteriovenous anastomosis (glomus body), which may be found anywhere in the skin, most often in the distal portion of the fingers and toes, especially beneath the nail. They may also occur in the stomach and nasal cavity.

It is composed of specialized pericytes (sometimes termed glomus cells), usually in single encapsulated nodular masses which may be several millimeters in diameter.

When located in the usual subungual site, the abundant innervation makes the tumor especially painful; when located elsewhere, the glomus tumor is painless.

angiomyopathy
Any disease of the blood vessels involving the muscular layer.
angiomyosarcoma
A myosarcoma that has an unusually large number of proliferated, frequently dilated, vascular channels.

A myosarcoma is a general term for a malignant neoplasm (new and abnormal growth of tissue, which may be benign or cancerous) derived from muscular tissue.

angiomyxoma
A chorioangioma containing capillary-like blood vessels; it may extend into the umbilical cord and often contains myxomatous tissue resembling that in the normal cord.
angionecrosis (s), angionecroses (pl) (nouns)
Death of blood vessels or necrosis of the walls of blood vessels.
angioneoplasm (s) (noun), angioneoplasms (pl)
An obsolete term for "angioma", a benign tumor consisting primarily of dilated or newly formed blood vessels or lymph vessels.
angioneuralgia
A burning pain in an extremity with edema and redness.
