The primary objective for the treatment of arteriovenous malformations (AVM) of the brain is to reduce the risk of hemorrhage. The risk of hemorrhage is known to increase with the presence of an aneurysm associated with AVM. The purpose of this report is to describe the development of visual complications after the embolization of a hemorrhagic anterior choroidal artery feeding AVM with an associated aneurysm and to describe the possible causes.
