Spontaneous bilateral carotid-cavernous fistulas: about a case and review of the literature.

Abstract We report a clinical case of spontaneous bilateral carotid-cavernous fistulas. Bilateral pulsatile exophthalmos and symmetric cavernous sinuses detected by CT scan helped to suspect the diagnosis. Arteriography confirmed the diagnosis. The patient underwent embolization with favorable neurologic and ophthalmic evolution. Carotid-cavernous fistula is a rare but severe complication associated with a poor functional (blindness) and vital (meningeal and intracerebral hemorrhage) prognosis. The concomitant use of arteriography and embolization has considerably improved the prognosis.
