The study design was a case report of spinal cord arteriovenous malformation (SCAVM) with various associations. The objective of this study was to demonstrate the need to identify atypical clinical associations with spinal arteriovenous malformation and their staged management. A 19-year-old boy was diagnosed with SCAVM after paraplegia and bowel bladder disturbances. However, a complete diagnosis of SCAVM with its syndromic association helps to treat the patient in holistic way. The correct diagnosis of SCAVMs and their type is difficult. Complete diagnosis relies on radiological investigations as well as detailed examination. The early and complete diagnoses of SCAVMs are important because patients are likely to have better functional statuses after treatment if their pre-treatment deficits are relatively mild.
