Abstract

The authors report a case of cerebral astrocytoma associated with a cavernous angioma. The patient presented with seizures and progressive hemiparesis. Diagnostic studies suggested the presence of a cavernous malformation with signs of previous haemorrhage. Surgery disclosed a complex tumour, which on histological examination revealed to be an anaplastic astrocytoma associated with a cavernous angioma.
