Cavernous angiomas are cerebral cavernous malformations and they are relatively rare lesions. Two forms of cavernous angiomas have been described: a sporadic form, in which patients usually have a single lesion, and a familial form, the hallmarks of which are multiple lesions and autosomal dominant transmission. The familial form appears to be very uncommon and has mainly been described in the Hispanic population. We report two cases of multiple intracranial cavernous angiomas which is an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance. It is very rare to find this in non Hispanic population.
