Abstract

Objectives: Cerebral cavernous malformations (CMs) are benign vascular hamartomas of central nervous system. Although they are mostly asymptomatic, they may occasionally result in life-threatening complications leading to surgical treatment. The main goal is to evaluate the surgical outcomes of operated pediatric cerebral CMs in our clinic and compare our results with the literature.
