A spinal epidural arteriovenous fistula with secondary reflux into the perimedullary veins is a rare entity. The authors present such a case with a discussion of its pathophysiology and treatment. The mechanism for formation of a spinal dural arteriovenous fistula is outlined based on the anatomical substrates in this region.
