Cerebrofacial venous anomalies, sinus pericranii, ocular abnormalities and developmental delay

Interv Neuroradiol. 2012 Jun;18(2):153-7. doi: 10.1177/159101991201800205. Epub 2012 Jun 4.


The clinical implications of venous cerebrovascular maldevelopment remain poorly understood. We report on the association of cerebrofacial venous anomalies (including sinus pericranii), ocular abnormalities and mild developmental delay in two children. In addition, one child had a seizure disorder. Complex cerebrofacial slow-flow vascular anomalies may herald an underlying developmental aberration affecting the cerebrofacial and orbital regions.
