Abstract
We report the case of a 42- year-old woman with spontaneous, right vertebral arteriovenous fistula associated with neurofibromatosis type 1. The patient presented with neck pain, retroauricular bruit, quadriparesis, and cervical spinal cord compression caused by an enlarged epidural vein. Endovascular treatment using coils and a balloon resulted in successful occlusion of the fistula. At six months post-embolization, the patient had improved significantly and was ambulant with support.
Key Words: Neurofibromatosis; Vertebral arteriovenous fistula; Embolization
