Abstract :

Introduction:Foix and Alajouanine first described the syndrome in 2 young men in 1926. It was thought to be a subacute myelopathy produced by a thrombotic process of the spinal cord that ultimately caused death. Objectives: 1. Anti-coagulation is contra-indicated in patients with spinal epidural AVM. 2. Sudden onset of paraplegia in a patient receiving anti-coagulation therapy should immediately raise the suspicion of hemorrhagic transformation of a previously undetected spinal epidural AVM. Methods: This is a clinical and neuroimaging case study. Results: Our patient with a diagnosis of Foix-Alajuannine syndrome developed intramedullary hemorrhage while receiving anticoagulation therapy for prevention of deep vein thrombosis. Conclusion: Our data, for the first time, document objectively the high risk of anticoagulants in spinal arteriovenous malformation, and mitigate against the use of these agents in this syndrome.
