Intracerebellar hemorrhage caused by developmental venous anomaly, from diagnosis to treatment

J Neurol Surg A Cent Eur Neurosurg. 2013 Dec:74 Suppl 1:e275-8. doi: 10.1055/s-0033-1349338. Epub 2013 Aug 8.


Background: Developmental venous anomaly (DVA) is considered a benign and asymptomatic cerebrovascular malformation, and only isolated cases of symptomatic DVAs are described in the literature. Even more rarely will these symptoms come from an intraparenchymal hemorrhage caused by the DVA.

Methods and results: We present two symptomatic DVAs by intracerebellar hemorrhage.

Conclusion: The diagnostic steps regarding the pathophysiology of DVA hemorrhage and the treatment options are discussed.
