Abstract

We report a case of congestive venous necrosis involving the diencephalon symmetrically, presumably precipitated by a dural arteriovenous malformation (AVM). The patient presented with a 1-month history of intermittent confusion and gait ataxia. The initial radiological work-up revealed a dural AVM. The patient's subsequent deterioration was accompanied by computed tomographic findings of diencephalic congestion. Pathological examination showed subacute necrosis of the diencephalon. We discuss the pathogenesis of this case of subacute diencephalic necrosis and its possible relationship to the entity of subacute diencephalic angioencephalopathy.
