GAZZERI, R. et al. Association between cavernous angioma and cerebral glioma: Report of two cases and literature review of so-called angiogliomas. Neurocirugía [online]. 2011, vol.22, n.6, pp.562-566. ISSN 1130-1473.
The association between vascular malformations and cerebral gliomas is unusual. While the association between cavernous angioma with gliomatous lesions is even more rare, it is considered by certain authors to be a particular pathological entity termed angioglioma. The authors report on two cases of association of a cavernous angioma with a ganglioglioma and an oligodendroglioma respectively. Subsequent review of the literature on the so-called angiogliomas was conducted. In the author's opinion, the entity of angiogliomas represents a general spectrum of angiomatous neoplasms that include gliomatous tumors, in the majority low-grade gliomas, associated with a major vascular component.
