Pediatric Cerebrovascular Disorders

Cerebrovascular disorders refer to a number of conditions that in children are typically linked to congenital malformations (conditions the child was born with), of the arteries and/or veins that circulate the blood supply throughout the brain. Many of these conditions can increase the risk for hemorrhage (excessive bleeding) or stroke due to compromised blood flow. In all of these cases, there is the risk of brain damage.

Cerebrovascular disorders are generally rare in children, but among them are:

  • Aneurysms 
  • Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs)
  • Moyamoya disease
  • Vein of Galen malformations
