We studied a case of cerebral capillary telangiectasis in infancy. The patient, who had received treatment with intramuscular corticotropin for hypsarrhythmia, suffered disseminated intravascular coagulation and died on the 66th day of life. Neuropathological examination disclosed the presence of two fresh hemorrhages of moderate size within the cerebral hemispheres, one of which seemed to have originated from a capillary telangiectasis within the left frontoorbital white matter.
