Abstract: A 32-year old woman presented with worsened headache for the past 2 weeks accompanied by an audible tapping sound in her right ear. She experienced significant head trauma about 10 years before. Clinical examination showed a mild protrusion of right eye with a small conjunctival chemosis. Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) indicated giant fusiform mass at cavernous segment of right internal carotid artery. Cerebral Digital Subtraction Angiography revealed a right carotid-cavernous fistula. The patient underwent surgery to entrap the aneurysm portion from internal carotis artery (IC) after the bifurcation, to proximal ophthalmic segment of IC. After surgery, visual acuity of right eye is preserved, and follow up CTA showed disapperance of CCF. The protrusion improves after one year follow up.
