Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Intracranial cavernous malformation are vascular lesions that can present for urgent surgical intervention. Occurrence in the infant demographic is extremely rare, and presentation can vary greatly. We present a striking clinical image of a large cavernous malformation with a larger cystic component in an infant that was successfully treated with surgical intervention and found to harbor a de novo novel KRIT1 gene abnormality, which affected the nature of surveillance.
