The authors report a case in which a cerebral arteriovenous malformation(AVM'S) disappeared completely and spontaneously within 7 years without bleeding episodes or surgical intervention. During the interval, he has been completely asymptomatic and had received no treatment except anticonvulsant medication for 6 months. There was no more epilepsy and mild muscular atrophy in the right lower extremity. A similar case has previously been described and is discussed briefly along with other cases of complete AVM'S regression.
