Abstract

As many as 25% of all cavernous malformations occur in children, and they are distributed in a bimodal fashion with peaks at 3 and 11 years of age. Cavernous malformations in children pose a unique set of challenges. This article therefore reviews the epidemiology, pathology, clinical characteristics, and management of cavernous malformations of the pediatric central nervous system. 2002, Elsevier Science (USA).
