Title

Nonpulsatile exophthalmos in carotid-cavernous sinus fistula.

Publication/Presentation Date

Abstract

An unusual case of carotid artery-cavernous sinus fistula with pulseless exophthalmos is presented in a two and one-half year old child. Though exophthalmos and increased episcleral venous distention were present, the ophthalmic artery pressure was not significantly altered as determined by ocular pneumoplethysmography. Consequently there was no evidence of hypoxic sequelae which frequently occur with this arteriovenous shunt. The combined use of arteriography and ocular pneumoplethysmography is advocated for determining and characterizing the presence of significant intracranial arteriovenous disease.
