Abstract

Brain vascular malformations are dynamic disorders. Although mostly considered to be of congenital origin, the improvement of clinical imaging and vasculogenesis knowledge has shown that they might also result from a biological dysfunction of the remodeling process after birth. Venous occlusive disease and ishemia may represent powerful revealing triggers and support the capillary venous origin of some vascular malformations. We report a unique case of the development of multiple de novo vascular malformations (transverse sinus dural fistula and posterior fossa cavernomas) following acoustic neuroma surgery.
