Vascular malformations of the brain are a rare cause of intracranial hemorrhage during pregnancy. The presentation of arteriovenous malformations during pregnancy is usually a result of hemorrhage following rupture. Once hemorrhage occurs, it accounts for 5–12% of all the maternal deaths and remains the third most common nonobstetric cause of maternal morbidity. Successful anesthetic management during cesarean delivery requires close monitoring to address both the varying maternal and fetal needs. The fundamental aims are to maintain oxygenation and stable systemic, cerebral, and placental hemodynamics and to avoid increase in intracranial pressure.
