CENTENO-ARISPE, José et al. Multiple cerebral cavernous: first case report in Peru. Rev Neuropsiquiatr [online]. 2015, vol.78, n.1, pp.57-61. ISSN 0034-8597.

Cerebral cavernomatosis (CC), single or multiple, is the presence of distended vascular channels, angiographically occult, for that, they are classically incidental intraoperative findings at autopsy. Currently the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) let us identify these lesions in a larger number of patients. Clinical manifestations are intracerebral hemorrhages, seizures and headache. A male, 55, no history of significance is reported; he was admitted for headache and some months later presents speech arrest crisis. On physical examination, nothing unusual. Previous tomographic studies showed a hemorrhagic lesion, when the brain MRI with T2-eco gradient protocol was performed, multiple images observed, were compatible with multiple CC. This is the first report of multiple CC, unfrequent entity that should be suspected in patients with no history of vascular risk who present intracerebral hemorrhage, seizure and / or headache; being the brain MRI, the study indicated for diagnosis.

Palabras clave : Intracranial cavernous angioma; cavernoma; multiple cavernous; gradient echo; cavernous hemangioma.
