Myéloradiculopathie chronique progressive chez un homme de 61 ans [Chronic progressive myeloradiculopathy in a 61-year-old man]
Publication types: Case Reports ; English Abstract ; Journal Article - Publication Status: ppublish
A painful worsening of known difficulties in walking led us to investigate a man who presented a spastic paraparesis. Radiological investigations had to be repeated three times before making a diagnosis of a right C6 spinal dural arteriovenous fistula after a 22-month follow-up. Knowing the mechanisms leading to spinal venous hypertension may explain the low yield of the early radiological investigations that should be repeated. The efficiency of the treatment depends on the severity of the presurgical neurologic manifestations.
