     Multiple cerebral AVMs are incidence ranges from 0.3 to 4.9 % in all AVM patients.
     Radiosurgery or embolization has been suggested as a useful modality added to the surgical treatment of patients with multiple cerebral AVMs.
     A 27-year-female was admitted on Nov-7-2006.
     A Brain CT showed a right frontoparietal intracerebral hematoma. Cerebral angiography demonstrated two separate AVMs, one fed by the right MCA, the other fed by Posterior circulation. GK Surgery was undergone.
     2 years later, angiography revealed complete obliteration of two cerebral AVMs.
     This is a retrospective study.
     The therapeutic strategy for cerebral AVMs remains difficult, especially if there are multiple scattered lesions.
     In our case, GK Surgery is effective for multiple cerebral AVMs.
