Abstract

This is the first report of a patient with venous insufficiency following compressive arachnoiditis ossificans (AO). Symptoms of fluctuating monoplegia and sensory disturbance appeared monthly, lasting several weeks each time. Spinal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed high T2-weighted signal intensity in the posterior portion of the column from T11 to T12 and an intradural lesion with low T2-weighted signal intensity. Neurological function and MRI improved markedly following an operation on AO. The symptoms seen in the present case were due to posterior venous insufficiency following compressive AO.
