Early description of synchronous double spinal vascular malformations by Łucja Frey in 1928

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The Polish neurologist Lucja Frey (1889-1942) is principally remembered for her description of the auriculotemporal nerve (or Frey's) syndrome. She also reported a complex case of spinal cord vascular malformation in 1928, which included one of the earliest accurate anatomopathological depictions of a spinal arteriovenous malformation as well as the frst known observation of double synchronous spinal cord vascular malformation. An abbreviated translation of Frey's report is followed by a discussion of the place occupied by her contribution in the development of our current understanding of spinovascular disorders.
