    Cerebral cavernous angiomas malformations (CCM) can be inherited as an autosomal dominant condition. CCM1, a yet unidentified gene mapping on 7q21-q22, was shown to be involved in all CCM Hispano-American families, with a strong founder effect. Genetic heterogeneity in non Hispano-American...

    Objective: To study the molecular genetic and clinical features of cerebral cavernous malformations (CCM) in a cohort of Spanish patients. Methods: We analyzed the CCM1, CCM2, and CCM3 genes by MLPA and direct sequencing of exons and intronic boundaries in 94 familial forms and 41 sporadic cases...

    Background Cerebral cavernous malformations are relatively rare vascular disorders that may affect any part of the central nervous system. This presentation has been associated with heterozygous mutations in CCM1/KRIT1, CCM2/malcavernin and CCM3/PDCD10. We aimed to investigate the genetic defect...
