CARVAJAL, Luis F; GOMEZ, Horacio; GOMEZ, Juan F  e  RUZ, Miguel A. Vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation: a case report. Rev. Colom. Cardiol. [online]. 2011, vol.18, n.3, pp.162-168. ISSN 0120-5633.

Aneurysmal malformations of the vein of Galen represent approximately one third of all intracranial vascular malformations in children. However, in our country we have few references. Patients with this type of malformation had high morbi-mortality rates until the early nineties; since then, the development of techniques of prenatal diagnosis and endovascular therapy have allowed to modify the prognosis of these patients. We describe the case of a patient in whom prenatal diagnosis of aneurysmal malformation of the vein of Galen was made, and was managed at four months of age with endovascular therapy with good results. We emphasize on early diagnosis and prevention of sequelae through appropriate intervention.

Palavras-chave : malformation of the vein of Galen; endovascular therapy; hydrocephalus; sequelae.
