• A cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM) spontaneously and completely disappeared on subsequent angiography. Computed tomography revealed a very similar picture to that of angiographically occult AVM, which was histologically thrombotic. Reviewing the literature, we suggest that in many cases the important factor related to regression of AVM is a previous bleeding episode.
