Abstract

Brain capillary telangiectasias (BCT) are small, clinically benign, usually asymptomatic and rarely seen lesions during childhood. Large symptomatic BCT during childhood are extremely rare, with only a few reports in the literature. They usually cannot be detected easily on conventional magnetic resonance imaging and angiography.
