Wyburn-Mason syndrome (also known as Bonnet-Dechaume-Blanc syndrome) is a rare, nonhereditary neurocutaneous disorder that typically presents with unilateral vascular malformations that primarily involve the brain, orbits and facial structures. It is currently classified as a craniofacial arteriovenous metameric syndrome (CAMS) 3-4.
- facial vascular naevus
- visual pathway and orbital arteriovenous malformations (AVMs)
- intracranial arteriovenous malformations (AVMs)
Cases of bilateral malformations have been described and there is an association with subarachnoid haemorrhage.
