Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Capillary telangiectasia is one of four forms of cerebral vascular malformations consisting of an area of dilated capillaries like a small petechial patch on the brain surface. The lesions are located mainly in the pons and cerebellum. We describe a case of diffuse capillary telangiectasia of the brain in a patient presenting with epilepsy who underwent morphological and function investigation using a 3T MR system.
