Cavernous angiomas or hemangiomas or cavernomas are benign, vascular malformations of the central nervous system and classified as occult vascular brain lesions, usually present in adulthood. With the advent of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, these lesions are increasingly recognized in children. We report two cases of pediatric brain cavernomas where the children presented with recurrent seizures. Imaging findings were suggestive of giant cavernous hemangioma. The lesions were excised completely and the patients recovered well without deficits with good control of seizures.
