Abstract

Cavernous angiomas of the cranial nerves are rarely reported. We report a case of a 33-year-old man affected by a cavernous angioma originated in the oculomotor nerve with it's palsy. Preoperative radiological findings are difficult to differentiate it from meningioma or neurinoma. Postopertive pathological report discloses it as cavernous angioma. We discuss radiological, pathological features and management of this vascular lesion of the cranial nerve.
