DESCRIPTION

Cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs), abnormal clusters of vessels with small blood-filled nodules, can be asymptomatic in the brain or can cause symptoms including epileptic seizures, progressive or transient neurological deficits, bleeds and headaches. CCM’s located in the brainstem, and those presenting with intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) or new focal neurological deficits (FND), have the highest risk for later brain bleeds.
