A cerebral angioma was described for the first time in 1757 by Hunter. The first pathoanatomical studies were done in 1863 by Virchow, who at the time thought he was dealing with angiomatous tumors. In 1888 Powers recognized them to be congenital vascular malformations not originating from the brain tissue itself.
