A case of spontaneous thrombosis and infarction leading to death as complications of a cerebral venous malformation in a 13-year-old boy is reported. This is the first published report of this type of complication occurring in a case of venous angioma. While the biologic behavior of cerebral venous,malformations has suggested that they are benign in nature, and the results of surgical management have encour aged a conservative approach, the present case illustrates a potential complication and argues against the assumption that these malformations are completely benign in nature.
