There is occasional recovery of symptoms due to slow seepage of blood from the cavernous malformation followed by gliosis or thrombosis within the cavernoma.
2,4,10) The appearance of a cavernous malformation with edema may be unclear and mimic other lesions such as neoplasm, including ependymoma, astrocytoma, hemangioblastoma, metastasis, multiple sclerosis plaque, and arteriovenous malformation.

Fine explains that cavernous malformations aren't caused by "anything you do, consume or have happen to you.
Cavernous malformations are relatively uncommon, as is the likelihood that they'll bleed seriously.
A cavernous malformation is a grossly discreet, well-circumscribed lesion with a reddish purple, multilobulated appearance.
