Vascular Tumors

So the little girl got a contrasted CT scan and the radiologist called to discuss it. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” he told me. “You’d better send her to children’s hospital.”

I chuckled a little at the radiologists comments. If HE didn’t know what it was, what was I supppsed to tell the pediatrician on the other end of the phone?

It turns out that the little girl’s sister had an AVM (arterio-venous malformation) in the brain just a few years ago, when she was the same age.

We’re not 100% sure what it is, but my money is an an AVM. We transferred her to the children’s hospital and into the never-never land of no-followup.
