Cavernous angioma

Cavernous angioma, also called cavernoma, is a vascular malformation that can be located in the brain or the spinal cord.

 

It can be present as single or multiple lesions. The underlying cause of its occurrence is usually unknown but there are some hereditary cases.

 

Hemorrhage (bleeding) or seizures are usually the presenting symptoms in symptomatic cavernous angiomas.

 

Surgery, if indicated, may be curative.
