Abstract

Spinal cord arterio-venous malformations (AVMs) are rare and the diagnosis is often delayed or missed. We describe two cases presenting in different ways, as subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) or myelopathy. A catheter angiogram confirmed the diagnosis following which they were treated with coil occlusion or embolisation, or a combination of both, without any complications.
