Özet

Spinal arteriovenous malformations are rare and still under-diagnosed entities. We present a case of a 59 year old man presented with paraparesis, lumbal MR imaging revealed high signal intensity within the spinal cord without contrast enhancement and flow voids along the dorsal surfaces of the cord at T6 to T11 level. Spinal angiography shows dural arteriovenous fistula at the level of T7 on the right side. The neurological and radiological findings completely resolved after endovascular treatment. The neurological symptoms due to venous congestion in the spinal dural arteriovenous fistula may be resolved if it is treated early and properly. Endovascular embolization is a safe and efficient way to treat.
