MULTIPLE CEREBRAL CAVERNOUS MALFORMATIONS – A CASE REPORT

, , , , , and

ABSTRACT

Cavernomas are frequent low-flow vascular malformations with a characteristic MRI aspect due to their specific morphology. We present the case of a 64-year old male diagnosed in 2008 with multiple cerebral cavernomas and symptomatic epilepsy, who developed left face, arm and leg paresthesias during the last 6 days. The MRI examination performed in our clinic showed increased number of infracentimetic lesions with no signs of hemorrhage or growth of the previous documented ones. Considering MRI findings and the patient being seizure free for the last three years there is no current indication for invasive treatment. The presence of multiple lesions along with their aspect on T2* MRI sequences suggest a hereditary form in absence of familial history of cerebral cavernous malformations.

Keywords: multiple cerebral cavernomas, symptomatic epilepsy, MRI T2*
