Abstract

This report describes three children, each of whom developed an unusual malformation consisting of one or more intracerebral arteriovenous fistulas and a large intraparenchymal venous varix. Their clinical symptoms were similar to those produced by aneurysms of the vein of Galen: increasing head circumference, seizures, hemorrhage, and developmental delay. We treated each child with endovascular embolization and/or surgery and obtained complete closure of all fistulas without mortality.
