Abstract

Patients with Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome present with venous varices, cutaneous capillary malformations, and tissue hypertrophy, usually involving an extremity. A small but important subset also harbors arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) of the spine. We report 2 such cases, 1 with 3 concurrent spinal arteriovenous fistulas. These cases and our review of the literature emphasize the importance of screening the spine for AVMs. In addition, it is also important to investigate for the presence of multiple spinal AVMs.
