ALIAGA Q, Adolfo; PALAVECINO B, Támara; ESPINOZA A, Rodrigo  e  DELLIEN Z, Holvis. Cavernomatous malformations: A classical disease review. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2013, vol.19, n.3, pp.117-124. ISSN 0717-9308.

Cavernomatous malformations (CM) are mamelonated vascular hamartomas, initially described by Virchow, which are considered the most common vascular malformation after developmental venous anomalies, with a prevalence of 0.5-0.7% in the overall population, without gender predilection. In imaging they show a broad range of dynamic behavior given their different levels of growth, possible regression, de novo formation and the risk of bleeding. In these circumstances, magnetic res onance imaging (MRI), especially T2 gradient echo sequence (T2GRE) and susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI), become very important for the detection and follow-up/monitoring of CM. This article reviews and updates the epidemiological and pathological features of CM; as well as presenting its various locations and characteristics, so that the diagnosis is not complicated.

Palavras-chave : Cavernomatous malformations; MRI; Susceptibility sequence.
