ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Left frontal cavernous malformation with DVA.

History: 76 y.o. woman who fell; LOC; no trauma to head; twisted ankle

Findings: 1. Outside head CT reported small 1cm homogenously round hyperdense lesion in left frontal lobe as an intraparenchymal hemorrhage (IPH). 2. Head CT in our hospital 5 hours later: stable 1 cm homogenously round hyperdense lesion, suspicious for cavernoma, suggest MRI for confirmation. 3. Brain MRI later shows classic “popcorn” appearance on T2-weighted image with low T2 signal in the periphery of the lesion consistent with cavernoma. In addition, small deep frontal vessels, draining towards the left ventricle, are noted on the post-contrast T1W image, consistent with a developmental venous anomaly (DVA).

Ddx: 1. IPH (intra-parenchymal hemorrhage) 2. Other vascular lesions such as AVM, AVF, or aneurysm. 3. Hypercellular neoplasm, either primary or metastatic.

Dxhow: MRI

Exam: Bruise on left ankle. No cranial nerve deficits or other neurological deficits.

No MeSH data available.


Curvilinear/serpentine flow void is consistent with a developmental venous anomaly (DVA). No mass effect, nor surrounding edema.
