Cavernous mal­for­ma­tions ­are vas­cu­lar ­lesions ­that ­occur in ­all ­parts of ­the cen­tral ner­vous ­system ­but ­most com­mon­ly in ­the cere­bral hem­i­spheres; unusu­al­ly ­they ­may be ­found ­along ­the mid­line (­basal gan­glia, pine­al ­region or ­brain ­stem), ­into ­the ven­tri­cle pos­sibly encroach­ing ­upon ­the fourth ­and third ven­tri­cle. We ­report a ­case of mid­line caver­no­mas of ­the IV ven­tri­cle, ­that ­grew to ­large ­size in-­time, dem­os­trat­ing ­the capac­ity ­for rap­id expan­sion.
