The co-existence of multiple cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and a spinal AVM is extremely rare. A 22-year-old man suddenly developed severe headache. Computed tomography (CT) scan showed intracerebral haemorrhage in the left occipital lobe. Cerebral angiography revealed eight AVMs; four were in the right frontal lobe and two each were in the right temporal and left occipital lobe, respectively. A huge high-flow spinal AVM was found incidentally. He had no other vascular lesions such as hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia. A left occipital craniotomy was performed and the ruptured left occipital AVMs were removed. Further therapeutic treatment was refused. To our knowledge, except for one autopsy case, this is the first reported patient with multiple cerebral AVMs with a spinal AVM. We discuss the characteristics of this case and review reported cases with cerebral and spinal AVMs.
