Developmental venous angioma

Julie A Augenstein, Teresa Chapman, Michael J McNeil, Mark D Lo
Cerebral developmental venous anomalies (DVAs) are benign anatomical variants of the venous system and are commonly described as an incidental finding without clinical significance. Neurologic symptoms or abnormal examination findings are rare and usually attributed to hemorrhagic complications related to coexisting cavernous malformations. There have been limited case reports of symptomatic, uncomplicated DVAs described in the literature. The following case describes a previously healthy child who presented to the emergency department with an acute onset of altered mental status, headache, and focal neurologic examination abnormalities...

Developmental venous anomalies (DVAs) are relatively common lesions, present in up to 3% of the population. The defining characteristic of these lesions is the confluence of radially oriented veins into a single dilated venous channel. DVAs are also known as cerebral venous angiomas, cerebral venous malformations, and cerebral venous medullary malformations. They are the most common type of cerebral vascular malformation found on autopsy studies, and they are often encountered as incidental findings on neuroimaging studies...

OBJECTIVE: Previously, cavernous angiomas(CAs)have been thought to be only congenital in origin. Recently, however, a few cases of de novo CAs have been reported in the literature. We present a case of a de novo CA and discuss the etiology of the newly appeared CA. CASE REPORT: A 29-year-old man was presented to a local clinic because of hypersomnia. MRI demonstrated a heterogeneous mass peripherally located, which was in contact with a developmental venous anomaly(DVA)at the left thalamus...

BACKGROUND: Sturge-Weber syndrome is characterized by a facial port-wine stain associated with either or both a retinal angioma and a cerebral pial angioma. Because a pial angioma may not be evident on the initial imaging studies, individuals at risk for epilepsy are often not identified before their first seizure. The aim of this study is to identify predictive factors predisposing Sturge-Weber patients to epilepsy. METHODS: The medical archives and photography database of our institution were reviewed to identify Sturge-Weber Syndrome patients followed up between 1990 and 2015...

Developmental venous anomalies (DVAs), previously called venous angiomas, are the most frequently encountered cerebral vascular malformations. However, DVA is considered to be rather an extreme developmental anatomical variation of medullary veins than true malformation. DVAs are composed of dilated medullary veins converging centripetally into a large collecting venous system that drains into the superficial or deep venous system. Their etiology and mechanism are generally accepted that DVAs result from the focal arrest of the normal parenchymal vein development or occlusion of the medullary veins as a compensatory venous system...

Epilepsy is a major morbidity in Sturge Weber syndrome, a segmental vascular neurocutaneous disorder classically associated with facial angiomas, glaucoma, and leptomeningeal capillary-venous type vascular malformations. The extent of the latter correlates with neurological outcome. Post-zygotic mosaicism for the activating mutation p.R183Q of the GNAQ gene has been identified as the major cause.  GNAQ encodes for an alpha subunit of a heterotrimeric G protein critical to blood vessel development. The earlier the timing of the mutation in development, the more severe the involvement, e...

Developmental venous anomaly (DVA) is a common lesion formerly known as venous angioma. DVAs drain normal brain parenchyma; however, parenchymal abnormalities surrounding DVAs have been reported. Unilateral putamen and caudate calcification in the drainage territory of DVAs has so far been reported in 7 cases, all with deep venous drainage. We present two additional cases of DVAs, one with superficial and the other one with deep venous drainage, associated with basal ganglia calcifications. We emphasize that DVAs should be in the differential diagnosis of unilateral basal ganglia calcifications...

OBJECT: Developmental venous anomalies (DVA), previously known as cerebral venous malformations or Venous Angiomas, are common benign entities often incidentally discovered at MRI examinations. They are non-pathologic variants of normal deep parenchymal veins that are usually asymptomatic, but they can rarely cause some complications. In this paper we described a rare case of obstructive hydrocephalus caused by a DVA located within the cerebral aqueduct and we also reviewed the previous literature on this topic...

BACKGROUND: The association of venous angiomas or developmental venous anomalies (DVA) with transient neurological deficit is rare. We present a rare case of a cerebellar developmental venous anomaly resulting in transient neurological deficits. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 58-year-old man with recurrent left sided facial dysesthesia, hemiparesis, and mild difficulty ambulating after exercise. A similar episode was experienced six months earlier under the same circumstances...

Developmental venous anomaly (DVA), formally known as venous angioma, is a congenital anatomic variant of the venous drainage of the brain. Although they typically have a benign clinical course and a low symptomatic rate, thrombosis of a drainage vein may occur, leading to potentially debilitating complications. We report a unique case of spontaneous thrombosis of a posterior fossa developmental venous anomaly with cerebellar infarct in a 61-year-old man who presented with acute onset cerebellar ataxia. DVA thrombosis was well-depicted on CT and MR studies...

Developmental venous anomalies (DVA) are large veins usually arranged in a cluster around a collector vein draining directly into the superficial and deep venous systems. Since the introduction of magnetic resonance imaging DVA have been disclosed more frequently. Many studies suggested and then confirmed the association between cavernous angioma and developmental venous anomaly, described for the first time by Roberson in 1974. The aim of our study was a retrospective assessment of the case series at our institution, namely to determine the frequency of the association between developmental venous anomaly and cavernous and analyse the relation between the two lesions...

BACKGROUND: Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is an uncommon etiology of hemiplegic migraine-like (HM-like) attacks, associated with epilepsy and mental retardation. CASE: We report the case of a 40-year-old woman with SWS who has been suffering from HM-like episodes since she was 24, with no history of seizure or mental retardation. Susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI)-MRI and CT scans have shown bilateral calcifications of the choroidal plexuses, a developmental venous anomaly with dilated transmedullary veins and a left parieto-occipital leptomeningeal angioma...

Developmental venous anomalies (DVA) drain normal neural tissue and are mostly discovered incidentally. We describe a young patient with a left hemisphere superficial to deep DVA and right hemisphere venous outflow restriction presenting with a seizure. The right hemisphere drainage variation is not typical of a DVA but represents another drainage pattern on the border of normality.

Intracranial developmental venous anomalies (DVAs), also called venous angiomas, and Wilson's disease are both considered rare disorders with varying degrees of neurologic and systemic manifestations; yet the coexistence of the two disorders is considered extremely rare, bearing in mind the low prevalence of each disorder. Epilepsy is a recognised presentation in these disorders and will be the focus of discussion in our report of a 21-year-old male patient who, based on a clinical examination and laboratory and neuroimaging results, was diagnosed with both Wilson's disease and DVA...

Venous angiomas are a developmental anomaly in which embryonic venous drainage is still present into adulthood. They are usually asymptomatic and benign course but they can cause seizures and less commonly bleeding, usually associated to cavernous malformation. Normally, treatment is not necessary although bleeding, severe clinical and lesions in which it is possible a favourable approach, we can consider treatment. We show a case of a 11 years old boy with acute decrease level of consciousness. We observed hematoma in the right cerebellar hemisphere with radial tubular structures consistent with developmental venous anomaly...

The occurrence of mesenteric lymph node angiomas (benign vascular neoplasms including lymphangioma and hemangioma) in untreated control rats in 2-year carcinogenicity studies can range from rare to common depending on the strain used. This lesion is most common in male rats. Factors and conditions that may contribute to the etiopathogenesis of lymph node angiomas in rats include: (1) genetic drift, (2) congenital/developmental malformation, (3) sinus vascular transformation/venous obstruction of outflow, (4) "inflammatory" pseudo-tumors, and/or (5) defects of endothelial lymphatic vascular secretion/permeability...

BACKGROUND: The management of deep-seated cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs) is still controversial. Although surgery remains the treatment of choice in patients with recurrent hemorrhage, patients with CCMs located in the brainstem are in many cases not eligible for resection due to high procedure-related morbidity and mortality. We evaluated the long-term outcome of LINAC radiosurgery (LINAC-RS) for the treatment of brainstem CCMs. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between December 1992 and March 2008, 14 patients (6 men, 8 women) harboring brainstem CCMs underwent LINAC-RS...

INTRODUCTION: Aqueductal stenosis may be caused by a number of etiologies including congenital stenosis, tumor, inflammation, and, very rarely, vascular malformation. However, aqueductal stenosis caused by a developmental venous anomaly presenting as congenital hydrocephalus is even more rare, and, to the best of our knowledge, has not yet been reported in the literature. In this study, we review the literature and report the first case of congenital hydrocephalus associated with aqueductal stenosis from a developmental venous anomaly...
