Abstract

Perimedullary spinal AVM is a rare type of spinal arteriovenous malformations. We present a case of 70 yrs female who presented with motor weakness in her bilateral limbs. Initial MRI was misinterpreted as ependymal myxoma; however, histopathology revealed spinal AVM. MRA or DSA should be conducted if AVM is suspected.
