Abstract

Venous congestive myelopathy associated with spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) is a treatable disorder that can be controlled without sequelae if it is diagnosed at an early stage. It is important to consider spinal DAVFs in the differential diagnosis based on clinical history and neurologic examination. We report the unique case of a patient with DAVFs at the craniocervical junction presenting with occipital/neck pain associated with sleep.
