Abstract

Carotid cavernous fistulas (CCF) are dural arteriovenous fistulas which include pathological communications between the arterial system and the venous cavernous sinus situated at the wall of the cavernous sinus. It can be demonstrated by wide range clinical presentations. The presented case shows a very modest clinical presentation of CCF which was present over a few months only as new daily persistent headache without initial positive findings on performed computer tomography of the head, but rapidly worsened over a period of few days.
