Br J Neurosurg. 1997 Aug;11(4):346-9. doi: 10.1080/02688699746168.


We report the case of a patient with progressive seizures caused by a cavernous angioma in association with a venous angioma in the right parietal lobe. The radiological findings, the pathogenesis of this association and the importance of surgical treatment of a cavernous angioma with conservative treatment of a venous angioma are discussed.
