Importance of anamnesis evaluation in the correct diagnosis of Cerebral Cavernous Malformations
Case report, 16 - 18Tag this article
The Cerebral Cavernous Malformations are insidious diseases; they can remain asymptomatic for a long time, the symptoms are often blurred, the overt manifestations can be severe and dangerous (cerebral haemorrhage). The anamnesis and its revaluation prove still to be cornerstones of the diagnostic, more for diseases with indistinct symptoms that might otherwise be ignored. The Authors in this article demonstrate how the careful anamnesis revaluation, followed by the radiological examinations of the case, allowed the identification of a cerebral cavernous malformation; they conclude that it surely has allowed to speed up the clinical care path of the patient and to provide a correct indication for the resolution of the disease.
