Intracranial vascular malformations are nonneoplastic developmental anomalies that present a variety of clinical patterns, ranging from asymptomatic to fatal intracranial hemorrhage. A practicing radiologist can expect to encounter these abnormalities, which include capillary telangiectasias, venous angiomas (also called developmental venous anomalies), cavernous angiomas, and arteriovenous malformations. The imaging findings that characterize these lesions are reviewed in this article, along with their pathological and clinical features.
