Abstract

Intraventricular arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a rare congenital vascular disorder that is often associated with primary intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) and a rapid clinical course. Acute imaging diagnosis requires depiction of both the location of hemorrhage and vascular nidus for emergent management. In this report, a 17-year-old teenager developed primary IVH with presentation of consciousness change during a video game. Multidetector-row computed tomographic angiography (CTA) demonstrated an AVM in the right lateral ventricle and its angioarchitectural relationship to the surrounding intracranial structures. Although selective angiography is essential both in planning treatment for cerebral AVMs and in establishing the final diagnosis, CTA can be an important first-line imaging modality to quickly confirm the diagnosis and hence initiate prompt management.
