ABSTRACT

A brain tumor associated with an arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is very rare. A 42-year-old female presented with two separate lesions in her right frontal lobe on MRI. An angiogram diagnosed one of the lesions as an AVM. The second lesion appeared to be a tumor. Tumor removal was difficult due to bleeding from the nearby AVM, necessitating removal of the AVM and allowing complete excision of the tumor. Histopathological analysis revealed the tumor was an anaplastic oligodendroglioma. There was no recurrence of the tumor 5 year after completion of therapy. We discuss the operative strategy in case of synchronous diseases and provide a review of the literature.
