  Although endovascular catheter embolization (ECE) has been accepted as a therapeutic option for arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) in children and adolescents, considerable and substantial data are still lacking regarding the outcomes of CE for AVMs. This study aimed to clarify the outcomes and the complications of ECE for the treatment of AVM in patients aged less than 18 years.

  This study reports a case of an <18 years old patient who presented a year ago with headaches, weakness, back pain and sift nick. A year later the patient was subject to bleeding and a ECE was performed. Endovascular embolization was performed according to the procedures, guide and techniques for AVM embolization.

  Endovascular catheter embolization (ECE) of brain AVMS is relatively safe with low rate of complications if the patient had good or excellent outcomes at discharge after AVM embolization using right liquid embolic agents. Long term following up is needed to decrease the probability of the future complication and assure the patient safety.
