Hello, Sorry to hear this. Gliosis means scaring in the brain which is normal after a hemorrhagic stroke. The site and your age are atypical for stroke. Sometimes because of the bleed and swelling in the brain, small AVM may be obscured and hence not detected. CT is not as sensitive as a MRI to detect brain pathology. Please see a neurosurgeon and he will order a MRI and a repeat DSA to find the exact cause of your problem. Regards.
