Many opatients who were in reproductive age had visited due to seiure(27%) and its angiographic findings were mixed Type(80%). Bleeding was predominant in the patients who had small sized nidus than medium or large one, and deep draining vein than superficial one. Medium sized AVM was located mainly in the anatomically deep portion(71%) and drained to deep portion also(71%). Associated aneurysm was more prevalent in deep seated or large sized AVM. Low grade AVM according to Spetzler's grading system showed good results of treatment. Postoperative hemorrhage or sizure were frequently found in patients who had superfically located AVM.
