Background: Although cavernomas are the most common brain vascular malformations, the etiology and risk factor(s) are still not entirely known. Recent publications focusing on the molecular basis suggest that genetic factors may play a role in the development of the brain vascular malformations. We aimed to show HLA typing in brain cavernoma in a group of Turkish patients.
