An Unusual Case of Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformation in Pregnancy


Figure 1.
Figure 1. Axial (a) and coronal (b) MRI of the brain performed at our institution demonstrated a nidal type right parietal AVM (as shown by arrows). MRI: magnetic resonance imaging; AVM: arteriovenous malformation.
Figure 2.
Figure 2. CT of the brain performed in view of patient’s persistent worsening headache revealed no acute intracranial hemorrhage or large territorial infarct. A few foci of isodensity with foci of calcifications (arrow) were seen in the right parietal lobe, associated with adjacent gliosis, and likely related to underlying vascular malformation. CT: computed tomography.
