    Abstract

    The congenital origin of brain arteriovenous malformations (bAVMs) has been increasingly challenged by reports of de novo bAVMs in patients previously confirmed to have no vascular malformation. We describe the oldest patient reported in the English language literature harboring a de novo bAVM. An uneventful frontal convexity meningioma resection was performed for a 60-year-old woman, and at 67 years of age, a bAVM was detected by MRI and confirmed by digital subtraction angiography at the site of the previous meningioma resection. This case adds to the growing literature that the etiology of bAVMs is most likely multifactorial.
