Abstract

Cavernous angiomas are cerebral vascular malformations that are usually congenital. These lesions are characterised as dynamic. The most common phenomenon in the course of these lesions is bleeding, which can result in significant fluctuations in their size and even lead to their disappearance. This article aims to describe the behaviour of a cavernous angioma in its natural history, documenting: (a) its de novo appearance, a very uncommon observation, and (b) its changes on imaging studies, where it grew progressively like an expanding lesion but had no clinical repercussions. On magnetic resonance imaging, atypical signs can orient the etiological diagnosis of cavernous angioma versus other alternatives: de novo appearance, fluid–fluid or air–fluid level, incomplete hypointense ring due to hemosiderin deposition, pseudotumour-like growth, pseudocyst-like or multiloculated shape, vasogenic oedema, mass effect, and size greater than 3cm.

Resumen

El angioma cavernoso (AC) es una malformación vascular cerebral, generalmente congénita, cuya historia natural se caracteriza por ser dinámica. La hemorragia es el fenómeno evolutivo más común del AC, puede ocasionar importantes fluctuaciones del tamaño de la lesión e incluso provocar su desaparición. El objetivo de este artículo es comunicar el comportamiento evolutivo observado en un AC en el que pudo documentarse: a) su aparición de novo, un hecho muy infrecuente y b) una evolución radiológica, de crecimiento progresivo, a modo de lesión expansiva, pese a no traducir empeoramiento clínico. En la evolución por resonancia magnética (RM), la presentación de signos radiológicos atípicos puede orientar el diagnóstico etiológico de AC frente a otros alternativos: aparición de novo, nivel líquido-líquido o hidroaéreo, anillo hipointenso incompleto de hemosiderina, crecimiento seudotumoral, forma seudoquística o multiloculada, edema vasogénico, efecto de masa y tamaño mayor de 3cm.
