Abstract:
Cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are a common congenital vascular anomaly, which often present in both children and adults. Surgery is considered curative once postoperative angiography confirms the absence of vessels. We describe a 6-year-old girl, who had a Spetzler-Martin Grade II AVM resected successfully, in which a recurrent AVM was detected on routine follow-up over 9 years post excision. The aetiopathogenesis of this rare occurrence with a review of literature is discussed. Long-term postoperative follow-up in the form of MRI/MR angiogram is recommended for all fully resected AVMs in the paediatric age group, anticipating the possibility of future recurrence.
