Abstract

We describe a female neonate with clinical features of neonatal suffering who underwent trans-fontanelle ultrasound scan. Ultrasound disclosed a hyperchoic expanding lesion, confirmed by subsequent MR scan which revealed large vascular structures and signs of bleeding within the lesion. Angiography was problematic given the weight of the neonate, the small vascular structures and the choice of angiographic materials. Three large vessels feeding the lesion were detected. Embolization was undertaken using acrylic glue to obtain rapid devascularization with a straightforward technique and minimum use of contrast medium and fluids in general.
