Abstract

Cavernous haemangiomas belong to a group of vascular malformations that are developmental defects of the vascular bed. Occurrence of an asymptomatic cavernoma in the pons is uncommon and worthy of record. At autopsy, cavernomas have to be differentiated from traumatic haemorrhagic lesions in head injury cases. We hereby report a case in which a pontine cavernous haemangioma was detected at autopsy in a 25-year-old female who died due to burn injuries.
