Dural arteriovenous fistula is a rare, but treatable cause of transverse myelitis
This is a case report of a 60-year-old male admitted on suspicion of relapse of idiopathic transverse myelitis (TM), who after further diagnostic workup underwent successful closure of a dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF). Magnetic resonance imaging in DAVF usually shows longitudinal TM, which, unlike DAVF, is also seen with the more common inflammatory or infectious causes usually showing inflam­mation in the cerebrospinal fluid. The natural history of DAVF is progressive. Since curable options exist, timely diagnosis is most important.
