Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) involving brain stem in children are uncommon. These lesions usually present as hemorrhage as the first manifestation. When these lesions present both clinically and radiologically as a mass lesion without hemorrhage, it is very difficult to make a preoperative diagnosis of AVM as in the present case. With sophisticated imaging modalities, it may be possible to suspect this diagnosis; however, with limited facilities still, it will be difficult to approach these lesions as in present case.
