Atalar MH, Salk I, Egilmez H - Pol J Radiol (2014)

Bottom Line: Radiological practice includes classification of illnesses with similar characteristics through recognizable signs.In this report, twenty-eight important and frequently seen neuroradiological signs in childhood are presented and described using X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) images, illustrations and photographs.

Mentions: Arteriovenous malformations are space-occupying lesions formed by conglomerated large vessels. There may sometimes be a very small amount of brain tissue between the vessels in intracranial arteriovenous malformations. There is no brain tissue at all in some cases. Thus, such an appearance of large vessels resembles clustered worms and is called a worm bag sign (Figure 18) [22].
