A carotid-cavernous fistula (CCF) is a pathologic arteriovenous communication between the carotid artery and the cavernous sinus, and the incidence of CCF as a result of craniofacial trauma is less than 0.2%. Traumatic internal carotid artery dissection (TICAD) is a rare phenomenon, occurring in 0.02 to 0.67% of cervical blunt trauma cases. We report a rare case of CCF associated with ICAD after craniofacial trauma injury,which is very rare. A 23-year-old woman presented with left ptosis on 21 days after a car crash accident. She had suffered from headaches, diplopia, tinnitus, and dizziness. Brain MRI revealed no mass or aneurysmal sac or intracranial hemorrhage, but cerebral angiography showed CCF with ICAD. She was treated with a ICAD percutaneous transarterial stent and endovascular embolization, 1 months after cerebral angiography. clinicians treating patients with craniofacial injuries should have a complete understanding of these patients’entity, because urgent intervention may improve outcome.
Key Words: Carotid-cavernous fistula (CCF); Internal carotid artery; Endovascular embolization;
