    Abstract

    Two cases of spontaneous intracerebral haemorrhage in adolescent girls suspected of having multiple sclerosis are reported. Surgical evacuation of haematomas in the left thalamus and left side of the pons, respectively, was performed with excellent recovery in both cases. Some clinical and pathological aspects of small arteriovenous malformations are discussed and the pertinent literature reviewed.
