Multiple intracerebral arteriovenous malformations. A case report and literature review

Surg Neurol. 1987 May;27(5):495-9. doi: 10.1016/0090-3019(87)90261-8.


The presence of multiple intracerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) in a single patient has only been very rarely reported. We present a patient with three separate angiographically demonstrable intracerebral AVMs, all of which were radiologically demonstrated and surgically removed without residual neurological deficit. A literature survey was conducted and all the previously described cases of multiple intracerebral AVMs are discussed, along with the potential diagnostic and therapeutic implications.
