Endovascular proliferation (circled) adjacent to colon-to-brain metastasis

I have had similar findings with pulmonary metastases. Nice case!

This is common with metastatic tumors in the CNS. It is well established that they can secrete the same array of growth factors which act upon vascular cells as do high grade gliomas. Often one can see the vascular hyperplasia beyond the border of the metastatic tumor, proof of the diffusibility of the secreted growth factors.
