Langer-Giedion syndrome associated with congenital dural arterio-venous fistula


Leu, Severina; Valavanis, Anton; Baltsavias, Gerasimos (2015). Langer-Giedion syndrome associated with congenital dural arterio-venous fistula. Child's Nervous System, 31(5):801-804.

Abstract

Langer-Giedion syndrome (LGS) is a rare disease caused by deletion of chromosome 8q23.3-q24.11. Clinical manifestations include among others multiple exostoses, short stature, intellectual disability, and typical facial dysmorphism. Dural arterio-venous shunts (DAVS) in the pediatric age are rare lesions, which have been classified into three types: dural sinus malformations (DSM), infantile type DAVS (IDAVS), and adult type DAVS (ADAVS). We report a case of a patient with a known LGS who was diagnosed with complex intracranial dural AV fistula at the age of 20. An association between LGS and intracranial dural AV fistulas has to our knowledge never been reported before.
