Traumatic spinal perimedullary arteriovenous fistula due to knife stabbing and subsequent kyphosis: case report.

J Neurosurg Spine. 2013 Aug;19(2):222-5

Abstract
Perimedullary arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is a relatively rare spinal vascular malformation. Although it has traditionally been considered to be a congenital lesion, some cases identified in adults have suggested that the lesion may be acquired. The etiology and exact mechanism of these lesions are unknown. The authors present a case of a perimedullary AVF caused by a direct stabbing injury of the spinal cord and induced by subsequent kyphosis, and they discuss the pathogenesis and treatment strategy.
