Dr. Ashutosh Rajguru | Dr. Chandratej Kadam | Dr. Kailash Mogal

Abstract: We present a case of a 21 year old female with at 22 weeks of pregnancy, who developed sudden headache followed by drowsiness. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain revealed intra parenchymal bleeding secondary to a right sided arterio - venous malformation (AVM). Craniotomy, AVM excised. Patient improved neurologically post op; and delivered by LSCS lateron. Cerebral AVMs, though rare, have the tendancy to cause potentially fatal outcomes. Neurological symptoms in a pregnant woman should be investigated for early diagnosis and management, due to its associated morbidity and mortality. A multidisciplinary approach should be adopted due to the complexity of the condition.
