Abstract

The management of the case of a 9-year-old boy with progressive cognitive impairment due to arteriovenous fistulae at the apex of the inferior sagittal sinus is reported. This represents a unique location for an extraparenchymal deep central arteriovenous malformation. The patient underwent staged ablation of the lesion by surgery. The postoperative course was complicated by expansion of an aneurysmal vein of Galen undergoing thrombosis and hyperperfusion syndrome, but the patient ultimately made a satisfactory recovery.
