Ahmet Mesrur Halefoğlu, Muhammet Acar, Sami Yakut

Cavernous angiomas are the second most common intracra¬nial vascular malformation after arteriovenous malformation and represent 15 % of all cerebral vascular malformations. They are congenital malformations and usually present with symptomatic hemorrhages or seizures. In our case report, we have presented a 11 year old female patient who had complex partial seizures. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a left amygdala lesion which demonstrated typical signal intensity characteristics of a cavernous angioma. The most common location for intracranial cavernous angiomas is within the cerebral hemisphers followed by pons.
