Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A case of cerebral venous saclike aneurysm of the parietal cerebral cortex is presented with surgical and histological confirmation. Computed tomographic findings are non-specific but very useful for detecting the lesion. Angiographic findings are not so obvious as with an arteriovenous malformation, but are necessary for the final diagnosis of a cerebral varix.
