Abstract :

A 17–year–old male patient was admitted into our medical ward with complaints of progressive overgrowth of jawbone and occiput since 10 years; protrusion of eyeballs since 3 years; recent onset of weakness in all 4 limbs, paraesthesias, headache, neckpain, and slurred speech. Clinical evaluation revealed small pulsatile swelling over tongue and kyphoscoliosis. Neuroimaging revealed cystic lesions in facial bones, calvarium and multiple verteae; arterio–venous malformations of ain; enlarged intra–orbital veins; and chiari malformation type–I. Biopsy from mandible confirmed the diagnosis of skeletal cystic angiomatosis. Finally an unusual combination triad of skeletal cystic angiomatosis, arterio–venous malformations, and chiari malformation type–I was documented in our patient. This rare, multi–centric combination triad of congenital malformations could not be found in literature.
