My daughters MRI results

My 10 year old, very healthy, daughter recently had her first ever seizure and the MRI results were as follows;

MRI images through the brain demonstrate a moderate sized developmental venous anomaly located within the left frontal lobe. This is best demonstrated on the contrast-enhanced study. There is a large supplying cortical vein supplying the DVA which measures 3mm x 30mm. At the tip of the venous anomaly, adjacent to the frontal horn of the left lateral ventricle there is a small focus of high T2 and Flair signal intensity which measures 6mm. There are no findings to suggest a localized bleed.

The cerebral hemispheres otherwise appear symmetric and preserved. Ventricles are normal. Cerebellar hemispheres appear symmetric and preserved. The midline structures of the brain are preserved. No additional areas of abnormal enhancement demonstarted.

We are meeting with a neruosurgeon in two weeks and in the mean time my daughter has regular periods of pain in her temple, cheek bone and upper molars.

I am not certain of the meaning of the MRI results above, could you please offer some insight and what it could suggest.

Thanks

Dear Friend,
Well to be frank, there is some developmental issue inside the brain.
It's documented by the following point- "At the tip of the venous anomaly, adjacent to the frontal horn of the left lateral ventricle there is a small focus of high T2 and Flair signal intensity which measures 6mm".
This shows that there is a small growth noticed and the doctors need to know, if that growth is increasing or shrinking in size.
The reason for the seizure can be easily correlated to this growth.
Only after establishing the facts, treatment can be planned. Hence please discuss further, once the consultation is over.
Regards
