Varying clinical presentations of familial cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs) and spinal cord cavernous malformations (SCCMs)



Varying clinical presentations of familial cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs) and spinal cord cavernous malformations (SCCMs)



Radiology Case Reports 7(3): 678



We present a family afflicted by both extensive cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs) and spinal cord cavernous malformations (SCCMs). These may be inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern or occur sporadically. The presentation varies and may include a multitude of clinical symptoms separated in time and space. Cavernous malformations should be considered in the differential diagnosis of such entities as stroke, headache, multiple sclerosis, and new-onset seizures after an intraparenchymal hemorrhage.
