Abstract

We report three cases of cerebral venous anomalies including two cases in adult patients. The third patient was four years old and had heterotopia of gray matter. Classic appearance of venous anomalies on imaging is that ”jellyfish head” or ”umbrella”. MRI visualizes drainage vein clearly. T1 with gadolinium injection and magnetic susceptibility sequence(venous bold) remain reference for cerebral venous anomalies. FLAIR sequence reveals parenchymal abnormalities (gliosis, demyelination). Diagnosis of associated lesions such as cavernoma guides therapeutic modalities.
