Ruptured aneurysm of the posterior spinal artery of the conus medullaris.J Clin Neurosci. 2005 Jun; 12(5):603-5.JC
A case of a posterior spinal artery aneurysm of the conus medullaris is presented. The patient presented with severe lower back pain with radiation into the right leg. Spinal angiography was consistent with a partially thrombosed arteriovenous malformation (AVM) or an aneurysm. At operation a partially thrombosed aneurysm of the posterior spinal artery was found at the level of conus medullaris, which, after review of the literature, is the first case treated with total microsurgical excision.
