Foix-Alajouanine syndrome mimicking a spinal cord tumor.

Rev Assoc Med Bras (1992) 2017 Jul;63(7):564-565

Division of Neurosurgery, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil.

Subacute necrotizing myelopathy (SNM) or Foix-Alajouanine syndrome is a rare disease characterized by progressive neurological dysfunction caused by a spinal dural arteriovenous fistula (AVF). Radiological diagnosis is usually suspected when there is intramedullary nonspecific enhancement and perimedullary flow voids. Ring-enhancement is rarely reported in the scope of AVF, which poses a diagnostic challenge and raises the suspicion of a spinal cord tumor. Read More

Rapid Recovery from Paraplegia in a Patient with Foix-Alajouanine Syndrome.

World Neurosurg 2017 Jan 26;97:750.e1-750.e3. Epub 2016 Oct 26.

Division of Neurosurgery, Department of Clinical Neurological Sciences, London Health Sciences Centre, University Hospital, London, Ontario, Canada.

Background: Foix-Alajouanine syndrome is defined as acute neurologic deterioration in the setting of a spinal dural arteriovenous fistula.

Case Description: This case report on a young patient with an unusual clinical onset of Foix-Alajouanine syndrome coincidentally occurring after his outpatient clinic appointment illustrates how prompt surgical treatment can result in rapid recovery of neurologic function despite preoperative paraplegia.

Conclusions: Venous hypertension with subsequent rapid resolution after surgical treatment is the pathophysiological mechanism underlying a dural arteriovenous fistula, in contrast to historical views suggesting that these lesions result from irreversible venous thrombosis, resulting in necrotic myelopathy.

[A Case of Foix-Alajouanine Syndrome due to Perimedullary AVF: Remission and Aggravation Mechanism Considered by an Open Surgical Biopsy and Intraoperative ICG Angiography].

No Shinkei Geka 2015 Aug;43(8):733-8

Department of Neurosurgery, Kashiwa Hospital, Jikei University School of Medicine.

Foix-Alajouanine syndrome (FAS), also known as congestive myelopathy due to spinal vascular malformations, presents with paraplegia, sensory disturbance of lower limbs, and dysfunction of the bladder and rectum. Although FAS is characterized by a subacute onset of neurological symptoms that may wax and wane over a few years, the progression mechanism remains unclear. We report a case of FAS due to an angiographically occult arteriovenous fistula (AVF) that was diagnosed by an open surgical biopsy and intraoperative indocyanine green (ICG) angiography. Read More

Venous congestive myelopathy of the cervical spinal cord: an autopsy case showing a rapidly progressive clinical course.

Neuropathology 2007 Jun;27(3):284-9

Department of Neurology and Geriatrics, Gifu University Graduate School of Medicine, 1-1 Yanagido, Gifu 501-1194, Japan.

We report a rapidly progressive myelopathy in a 74-year-old Japanese man who was admitted to our hospital with a 4-month history of progressive gait disturbance and died of pneumonia followed by respiratory failure on the 22nd day of admission. During the course of his illness, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed intramedullary lesions with edematous swelling from the medulla oblongata to the spinal cord at the level of the fourth vertebra. After administration of contrast medium, the ventral portion of the lesion was mildly and irregularly enhanced and a dilated vessel was recognized along the ventral surface of the upper cervical cord.

CGB laborator spol. s r.o., Ostrava.

The subacute angiohypertrophic myelomalacia Foix-Alajouanine was first described by French authors in 1926 and belongs to the wider category of CNS vascular malformations. Both individual casuistics and larger sets of patients with this disease can be found in literature scarcely. We are presenting three necroptic cases of subacute angiohypertrophic myelomalacia (Foix-Alajouanine) that were mistakenly diagnosed clinically, once as metastatic lesion of spinal canal, once as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and once as inflammatory lesion of spinal cord.

Dementia resulting from dural arteriovenous fistulas: the pathologic findings of venous hypertensive encephalopathy.

AJNR Am J Neuroradiol 1998 Aug;19(7):1267-73

Department of Radiology, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia 19104, USA.

Purpose: Dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) are acquired arteriovenous shunts located within the dura. The highly variable natural history and symptomatology of DAVFs range from subjective bruit to intracranial hemorrhage and are related to the lesion's pattern of venous drainage and its effect on the drainage of adjacent brain. We examined the prevalence and features of DAVFs in patients with progressive dementia or encephalopathy. Read More

In a 65-year-old patient with slowly progressive myelopathy of the lower spinal cord MRI revealed slight thickening of the conus medullaris and discrete serpiginous areas of low signal intensity in contact to the surface of the myelon. The T2-weighted axial images demonstrated a zone of high signal intensity within the center of the lumbosacral cord. These findings corresponded to the results of autopsy: cord enlargement, dilatation of wall thickened and partially thrombosed pial veins, edema, damage of the myelin sheath with development of foam cells, areas of hemorrhage and necrosis.

The sensitivity of the diagnostic procedures in space occupying lesions of the spine have been markedly improved in the recent past, mainly due to the application of CT and MRI--technology and the introduction of superselective angiography. Despite these 'high-tech'-investigations, neurological examination still provides the sole in neurological diagnosis. To show the discrepancies between the techniques mentioned, we present a case of a vascular malformation of the spine with secondary myelopathy (so-called "Foix-Alajouanine-syndrome"). Read More

Reversible acute and subacute myelopathy in patients with dural arteriovenous fistulas. Foix-Alajouanine syndrome reconsidered.

Surgical Neurology Branch, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, Bethesda, Maryland.

Acute or subacute neurological deterioration without evidence of hemorrhage in a patient with a spinal arteriovenous (AV) malformation has been referred to as "Foix-Alajouanine syndrome." This clinical entity has been considered to be the result of progressive vascular thrombosis resulting in a necrotic myelopathy; it has therefore been thought to be largely irreversible and hence untreatable. The authors report five patients with dural AV fistulas who presented in this manner, and who improved substantially after embolic and surgical therapy. Read More

Myelopathy due to intracranial dural arteriovenous fistulas draining intrathecally into spinal medullary veins. Report of three cases.

J Neurosurg 1988 Dec;69(6):934-9

Clinical Neurosurgery Section, National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disorders and Stroke, Bethesda, Maryland.

Arteriovenous malformations (AVM's) of the spine commonly cause progressive myelopathy. Occasionally, myelography reveals serpentine filling defects characteristic of a spinal AVM, but an AVM or arteriovenous (AV) fistula cannot be demonstrated arteriographically, despite selective catheterization of all vessels known to have the potential of supplying the spinal cord and spinal dura. Often, and particularly in the setting of subacute or acute deterioration, this has been attributed to spontaneous thrombosis of the veins (the Foix-Alajouanine syndrome). Read More
