An initially healthy infant born of an uncomplicated full-term gestation was brought for evaluation of the acute onset of vomiting, irritability, lethargy, and opisthotonus at 14 days of age. Computerized tomography demonstrated an intraventricular hemorrhage. Arteriography defined an angioma on the roof of the third ventricle which was successfully removed via the transcallosal interfornicial approach on the 34th day of life. Other than an easily controlled seizure disorder, the postoperative course was uneventful. At 8 months of age the child is developing normally. Arteriovenous malformations should be considered in the differential diagnosis of intraventricular hemorrhage in full-term neonates without predisposing trauma or bleeding diathesis. High-speed digital subtraction arteriography may be used to screen for this diagnosis. The transcallosal interfornicial exposure offers a satisfactory approach for excising third ventricular angiomas in young infants.
