Abstract

Developmental venous anomalies(DVAs), formerly known as venous angiomas,are nonpathologic changes invenous drainage from areas of cerebralwhite matter and are not true vascularmalformations (1). Most DVAs are clinicallysilent and are usually discoveredincidentally on enhanced computed tomographyor magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) of the brain.We report a case of 48-year-oldwoman who underwent liver transplantationfor HCV-related liver cirrhosis;pretransplant she had a Model forEnd-Stage Liver Disease score of 23, aChild-Pugh B9 and a United Networkfor Organ Sharing registry 2A.
