Developments in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques have dramatically increased the detection of cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs). Conservative treatment is often recommended for asymptomatic cases. However, CCMs occasionally harbor malignant gliomas. Here, we describe a rare case of multiple probable CCMs and an anaplastic oligodendroglioma (AO) showing vasculogenic mimicry (VM) and discuss the potential pitfalls of conservative treatments. A 42-year-old otherwise healthy woman… CONTINUE READING
