The authors describe an unusual case of central pain (CP) that resulted from giant venous hemangiomas. The patient was treated with a variety of medications, including the N-methyl-D-aspartate antagonist dextromethorphan. We report the first known association between venous malformations and CP and briefly describe why the use of dextromethorphan in this disorder requires further evaluation.
