Abstract

In cases of intracerebral haematoma associated with developmental venous anomalies (DVAs), there is usually an associated cavernoma, which is thought to be the source of haemorrhage. Only a few cases have been reported in the literature where an intracerebral haemotoma has been caused by a DVA without an associated cavernoma. In this report we describe a case with a massive haematoma due to venous angioma alone.
