Abstract: Cerebral cavernous malformations are a cerebral vascular disorder characterized by abnormal vascular spaces lined by a single layer of endothelium without intervening neural parenchyma. Its clinical course is variable between asymptomatic, seizures or neurological deficit, previously classified as idiopathic seizures or occult angiographic vascular malformations. Currently with MRI they are detected in T2 gradient-echo sequences (GRE). We present a clinical case of a patient with seizure episodes with CT and brain MRI studies with findings of brain cavernomas, surgical intervention is performed with excision, the histopathological study confirms the diagnosis of brain cavernoma.
