NIH Rare Diseases:43 Vein of galen aneurysm is a rare form of arteriovenous malformation in which a particular vein at the base of the brain, the vein of galen, dilates causing too much blood to rush to the heart and leading to congestive heart failure. sometimes the defect will be recognized on an ultrasound before birth, but most often it is seen in infants who experience rapid heart failure. in less severe cases, a child may develop hydrocephalus because the enlarged malformation blocks the normal flow or absorption of cerebrospinal fluid. although the exact cause remains unknown, this condition appears to be a result of a defect in early fetal development. last updated: 9/15/2011

MalaCards: Vein of Galen Aneurysm, also known as vein of galen arteriovenous malformations, is related to aneurysm and congestive heart failure, and has symptoms including cerebral vascular anomalies, peripheral arteriovenous fistula and arterial aneurism (excluding aorta). An important gene associated with Vein of Galen Aneurysm is RASA1 (RAS p21 protein activator (GTPase activating protein) 1). Affiliated tissues include heart, brain and pineal.
