Spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage associated with traumatic carotid-cavernous fistula is rare. The cardinal symptoms of traumatic carotid-cavernous fistula are confined to ocular manifestations. This article describes a case of traumatic carotid-cavernous fistula which was initially diagnosed as an intracerebral hemorrhage, after ocular symptoms were overlooked. Because some cases of carotid-cavernous fistula have an atypical drainage which can result in intracerebral hemorrhage, early diagnosis and intervention are vital to prevent this unwanted intracerebral hemorrhage.
Key Words: Carotid-cavernous fistula; Intracerebral hemorrhage; Atypical drainage
