Abstract

The authors report a rare case in which a large cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM) located in the left parietooccipital region presented with venous ischemia in the contralateral hemisphere. A 74-year-old man was admitted to the hospital because he was experiencing a loss of appetite, disorientation, and left hemiparesis. Computerized tomography scans revealed a low-density area in the right temporal lobe. Angiography demonstrated a large AVM in the left parietooccipital lobe and dilation, stagnation, and meanders of cortical veins in the contralateral hemisphere. The authors speculated that the elevated sinus pressure caused by a huge venous return of blood from the AVM produced venous ischemia in the contralateral hemisphere.
