A Cerebral Cavernous Malformation is an tangle of abnormal blood vessels in the brain. Because of their abnormally thin walls, the blood vessels in cavernous malformations are very weak and prone to leakage. Leakage causes hemorrhage (bleeding) in the area of the cavernous malformation.
Those with either Cavernous Malformations may experience signs and symptoms such as:
● Weakness in the arms or legs
● Visual impairment
● Long and short term memory issues
● Inability to focus
