There are also cavernous malformations which are sinusoidal dilations of vessels that can bleed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The parents with an autosomal recessive condition each carry one copy of the mutated gene, but they typically do not show signs of the condition. Brain damage is common from hyperthermia due to absent sweating. Most die by 3 years of age. ...Read more
