A case of spontaneous haematoma from vertebral artery arterio-venous fistula in a patient with neurofibromatosis type 1
MetadataShow full item record
Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominant condition caused by a mutation on chromosome 17. Vascular abnormalities are recognised complications of NF1. These include aneurysms, stenoses, arteriovenous malformations, fistulae, etc. We report the case of a young gentleman with NF1 with a spontaneous cervical bleed from an arteriovenous fistula arising from the left vertebral artery, and illustrate the various management options and difficulties arising from rapid fistula formation.
