Answer

The general examination occasionally reveals manifestations of associated conditions such as subacute bacterial endocarditis, trauma, or collagen-vascular disease.

Specific physical examination findings may include prominent scalp veins, signs of congestive heart failure (eg, vein of Galen aneurysms), or orbital bruits (eg, cavernous carotid aneurysms).
