What is Cavernoma?

A Cavernoma is an irregular cluster of arteries and veins tightly packed into blood-filled bubbles known as caverns. The blood is often clotted, resembling red berries, and can rupture in some cases. Cavernomas can develop within the brain and spinal cord, ranging in size from 0.6 cm to around 10.2 cm. The condition might have a genetic basis or stem from other factors.

Recognising the Symptoms of Cavernoma

Cavernomas may not always present evident symptoms. Seizures can occur if they form on the brain’s outer surface. Symptoms typically vary based on their location, commonly affecting those in the brain stem, basal ganglia, and spinal cord. These include:

  • Seizures
  • Headaches
  • Weakness/numbness in limbs
  • Issues with speech, memory, attention
  • Balance loss
  • Vision-related problems

What causes Cavernoma?

The root cause remains unknown in most cases. Genetic factors play a role in less than half of cases, while the majority develop spontaneously. Linked genetic mutations comprise:

  • KRIT1 (also known as CCM1)
  • CCM2
  • PDCD10 (also known as CCM3)

Diagnosis of Cavernoma

Diagnostic methods for cavernomas include:

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Genetic testing

Management / Treatment of Cavernoma at IBS Hospital

Our treatment approach for cavernomas comprises the following options:

  • Medication: Our expert medical team focuses on effective symptom management, especially addressing seizures.
  • Surgery: In cases where medication yields inadequate results, our specialized recommendation involves surgical intervention to remove the cavernoma.
