    A 22-year-old man presented with tonic-clonic seizure and was admitted to our hospital. He had suffered from frequent headaches, and had been diagnosed with a brain tumour on MRI 13 years ago. However, neither further examination nor follow-up neuroimaging study have been performed. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated an intraaxial tumor with granular calcification in the right frontal lobe, attached to the adjacent dura mater, which was enlarged compared with the lesion on CT 13 years before. The lesion was surgically excised through right frontal craniotomy. Histopathological analysis indicated cavernous angioma. In cavernous angioma in younger children, more aggressive surgical indications than in adults may be favorable both to prevent hemorrhagic complications and to confirm pathologic diagnosis.
