Vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation is a rare entity in the paediatric population. However, it is being recognised with increasing frequency due to better diagnostic techniques. Neonates usually present with congestive heart failure, while in older infants and children it tends to manifest with seizures, hydrocephalus, intracerebral or subarachnoid haemorrhages. We present a case of ruptured vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation in a 3-month-old baby boy treated by transarterial embolisation using Guglielmi detachable coils.
