Vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation is a rare form of commonly encountered symptomatic cerebrovascular malformations in the
neonatal period. High output congestive heart failure as a result of increased flow in intracerebral shunts, and pulmonary hypertension of different severity as a result of increased intravascular volume, are two important comorbidities that may coincide. Increased perinatal morbidity and mortality in the neonatal period are mostly attributed to high output congestive heart failure.
