Abstract A seven month old boy suffered fron an inoperable extensive bilateral vascular malformation of the dura and the sinus system. This congenital lesion was artificially embolised in two sessions by injecting several hundred small steel spheres through the external carotid arteries. Clinical and neuroradiological reexaminations revealed a favourable result in this case. The technique and risks of this method which so far had not been applied in infants are demonstrated.
