Definition


Cerebral angioma consists of small vascular malformations located in the brain. Cerebral angioma is often only diagnosed at the rupture of the vessels that make up these malformations, often because of headaches associated with motor or sensory deficiencies, or because of seizures. Cerebral angioma can be triggered by involuntary muscle spasms similar to those found in epileptic seizures. Neurosurgery is the first-line treatment to cure cerebral angioma if it is responsible for the clinical symptoms that affect the life of the patient.
