A vascular malformation of the brain is a condition affecting the blood vessels that surround the brain tissue. There are six different types of vascular malformations of the brain: cavernous malformations, venous malformations, arteriovenous malformations, mixed malformations, vein of Galen malformations, and telangiectasis. Symptoms of a vascular malformation of the brain depend on the type and severity of the malformation, but they can include dizziness, headaches, seizures, stroke, and vision and speech impairment. The direct cause of a vascular malformation is not known, although they are considered to be congenital birth defects. Treatments also depend on the type of vascular malformation, but the most common options are embolization, stereotactic radiosurgery, and neurosurgery. Treatments work on preventing on any more damage being done to the brain, and there is no current treatment that can fully cure a patient.
