A ­case of ­third ven­tri­cle cav­ern­ous angio­ma asso­ciat­ed ­with ­venous angio­ma is report­ed. By a trans­ven­tric­u­lar ­approach, the caver­no­ma was total­ly ­removed ­with suc­cess­ful pres­er­va­tion of the ­venous mal­for­ma­tion. After ­review of the lit­er­a­ture, the clin­i­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics and the sur­gi­cal ­approach to ­third ven­tri­cle cav­ern­ous angio­ma are dis­cussed; the impor­tance of pres­er­va­tion of asso­ciat­ed ­venous angio­ma is ­also under­lined.
