Abstract

Developmental venous anomaly (DVA) is now considered common and benign disease within the field of cerebral vascular malformation. Though symptomatic DVA is uncommon, further management is necessary to alleviate the symptoms and signs induced by symptomatic DVA, such as parenchymal hemorrhage, venous infarction, brain edema, obstructive hydrocephalus, and nerve root compression. From the viewpoint of obstructive hydrocephalus, mostly resulted from obstruction of aqueduct of Sylvius. Herein, we reported a case with presentation of obstructive hydrocephalus caused by DVA induced fourth ventricle outlet obstruction.
