Case Study: Posterior Fossa Brain AVM – 20-Year Follow-Up

The Neurovascular, Brain & Spine Surgery Teams presents this week’s case study:

A 40-year-old woman who was 5 months pregnant, presented to the emergency room with a sudden onset of a bad headache. CT and MRI of the head showed a small bleed from a posterior fossa arteriovenous malformation (AVM) in the superior portion of the cerebellar vermis. After a few days, she felt better and was discharged. Several months later she completed her pregnancy with a healthy delivery.
