The vein of Galen malformations (VGAMs) are usually found in childhood and rarely described in adult. There are two major types of presentation: hemodynamic failure in neonates due to massive shunt, and venous hypertension during infancy. VGAMs are treated by endovascular methods in the majority of cases. We present a rare case of a 40 years old patient with incidental finding of VGAM who presented a spontaneous thrombosis and a complete restoration of the deep venous system followed by a review of the literature of resembling cases.
