Abstract
Arteriovenous malformation(AVM) is the rare cause of neonatal intracranial hemorrhage. It is a congenital vascular lesion that can arising anywhere in the body. We report here on an unusual case of AVM in a full-term newborn infant who has no symptoms except enlarged bulging anterior fontanelle. AVM of other organs or adult cases were reported occasionally, but postoperative surviving intracranial AVM in a newborn infant has not been reported in Korea so far. The hematoma which was in the cortex of left temporal area, was removed surgically and the baby is living well under regular neurological check up.
Key Words: Arteriovenous malformation, Intracranial hemorrhage, Newborn
