Abstract

Cavernous cerebral malformations (CCMs) can show typical and characteristic findings at neuroradiology, above all at magnetic resonance imaging, but differential diagnosis with other lesions of similar appearance can be challenging and should be taken into consideration. Management of CCMs can be conservative in most cases, and thus appropriate follow-up timing and modality is required. Growing input from neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and patients recommend to offer a standard neuroradiological report, to enhance interpretation and comparability in daily clinical practice. The purpose of this chapter is to present differential diagnosis, follow-up, and reporting of CCMs by neuroradiology.
