The diagnosis of vein of Galen malformation was actually made antenatally. Postnatal MRI demonstrated a large malformation. As the neonate remained haemodynamically stable, treatment was delayed. Follow-up imaging demonstrated a marked increase in the size of the malformation and hydrocephalus. Therefore, endovascular treatment was subsequently undertaken.
