Abstract Cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVM) are vascular lesions that occur either congenitally or arise in early childhood. AVM are characterised by arteriovenous shunts through a nidus of coiled and tortuous vascular connections that connect feeding arteries to draining veins. Generally, AVM become evident through intracranial haemorrhage in patients aged 20-40 years. Especially, in the young adult presenting with epileptic seizures or focal neurological deficits AVM needs to be considered as an important differential diagnosis. Treatment modalities for the occlusion of symptomatic AVM include microneurosurgery, endovascular embolisation, or radiosurgery. These can be performed each on its own or in combination with the others. Incidentally diagnosed AVM require a thorough and individual consideration of treatment indications. This review deals with the current recommendations for the treatment of AVM in the adult patient.
