• A patient with recurrent subarachnoid hemorrhage was seen initially with intermittent signs and symptoms of intracranial and spinal cord dysfunction. Myelography and spinal angiography revealed an arteriovenous malformation (AVM) and aneurysm of the spinal cord. Extensive investigation failed to reveal any intracranial lesion. The relationship of subarachnoid hemorrhage at a spinal level to the development of remote neurological abnormalities is discussed, and previous reports of aneurysms associated with spinal AVM are reviewed.
