Abstract

An unusual case of intracranial hypertension and symptoms of a left parieto-occipital mass lesion due to a dural arteriovenous malformation (AVM) with a large and dilated draining vein is reported. The patient also had a history of homolateral recurrent subdural haematoma, 11 years before. Subduralhaematoma is rarely associated to a dural AVM. We suggest that the recurrent subdural haematoma was due to the very slow and intermittent venous bleeding from the preexisting dural malformation, which progressively enlarged in the following years to become very large. The symptoms of intracranial hypertension and papilloedema may be explained by the increased pressure in the dural sinus and the cerebral venous system. On the other hand, focal neurological symptoms in our case resulted from the mass effect due to an aneurysmally dilated draining vein in the left parieto-occipital region.
