Free full text article: Vein of Galen Malformation, a cause of Intracranial Calcification: Case Report and Review of Literature

Abstract
Intracranial calcifications in the pediatric population can have many etiologies including neoplastic, infectious, neurodegenerative, metabolic, or cerebrovascular abnormalities. We present the case of a 2-year-old boy with vein of Galen malformation, a rare cause of intracranial calcifications with a review of literature.
