Abstract

We report the cases of two patients, each of whom had two separate angiographically demonstrable intracerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). One patient had an intraventricular hemorrhage with AVMs in the basal ganglia and the insula on the left side, and the other had a pontine hemorrhage with AVMs in the pons and the occipital lobe on the right side. The AVMs in the former patient were removed totally without residual neurological deficit. We discuss the diagnostic problems of multiple intracerebral AVMs and stress the need for thorough neuroradiological evaluation so as not to miss an occult AVM. We also stress the necessity of total excision of all the lesions and point out several problems faced in surgery for AVMs.
