Diffuse nidus of malformed flow voids with serpigenous appearance (bag of worms) involving the left temporal and parietal lobes resulting in 6 mm of contralateral shift of the midline. An arterial supply derived from a dilated left middle cerebral artery and a venous drainage into the cortical veins, internal cerebral vein and superior sagittal sinus. No hemorrhage. Subsequent atrophy of the left temporal lobe with a dilated left temporal horn is demonstrated. No abnormal vascular malformation of the soft tissues of the skull and face.
These findings are in a known untreated parenchymal arteriovenous malformation.
