Intracranial cavernous hemangioma in a neonate

Pediatr Radiol. 2001 Sep;31(9):610-2. doi: 10.1007/s002470100488.


Cogenital intracranial hemangioma is rare, and the imaging findings have been described in very few cases. We describe a case of a huge congenital left parietal hemangioma that was diagnosed postnatally by head duplex ultrasonography. Complete surgical resection yielded an excellent outcome.
