Thalamic arteriovenous malformation

Case contributed by Dr Hani Salam


21-year-old male with left sided weakness.

Case Discussion

CT scan of the brain was performed which showed an abnormal serpentine hypo/hyperdensity involving the right thalamus. 

Brain MRI clearly show a right thalamic lesion with a complex mixture of hyperintensity and hypointensity due to turbulent flow mainly appreciated on T2W images. 

Post contrast and MRA sequences increase the conspicuity of the arteriovenous malformation.
