Developmental venous anomaly depicted incidentally in fetal MRI and confirmed in post-natal MRI
Cerebral developmental venous anomalies (DVAs) are the most common subtype of congenital brain vascular malformation. They are widely reported in the adult population and less frequently within the pediatric age group [1, 2]. Interestingly, their depiction and characterization in utero using cerebral ultrasound with Doppler and/or fetal brain MRI has only recently been described in a small case series, although post-natal images were not provided in that paper .
