Abstract

Cavernous angioma of spinal cord is an extremely rare vascular malformation. The association with brain cavernous angioma is even uncommon. There should be a high index of suspicion for a spinal cord lesion whenever a brain cavernous angioma is diagnosed, in cases with appropriate suggestive spinal symptoms. We present a case of cavernous angioma of the brain involving the genu of the corpus callosum, co-existing with spinal cord hemangioma. Involvement of the corpus callosum by a cavernous angioma is also uncommon. Intraventricular extension of this lesion was also detected.
