An incidental pure arterial malformation in a child: case report and review of the literature

Abstract

Purpose

Pure arterial malformations of the brain are rare vascular lesions.

Methods

We present a 10-year-old healthy boy who presented with an incidental finding of pure arterial malformation.

Results

Our case seems to represent the second description of pure arterial malformation discovered incidentally in a child.

Conclusion

We review the clinical presentation, angiographic findings, and management of our case in the context of other reported pediatric cases.
