|Vertebral artery aneurysms and cervical arteriovenous fistulae in patients with neurofibromatosis 1.|
|PMID: 20470689 Owner: NLM Status: MEDLINE|
|Vascular involvement in the setting of neurofibromatosis type 1(NF1) has been well described. However, the coexistence of NF1 with vertebral artery (VA) aneurysms and arteriovenous fistulae (AVFs) is a rare occurrence. A 60-year-old female with NF1 and other severe comorbidities presented with acute respiratory insufficiency caused by a ruptured large VA aneurysm and an associated AVF that required emergent intubation and eventual repair through endovascular techniques that resolved her symptoms. A detailed description of this case and a comprehensive review of the literature are also presented.|
