We report a case of lateral cavernous sinus wall dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) accompanied large venous aneurysm which is presented intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). A 58-year-old male patient came to emergency department for acute onset of headache and dysarthria. In brain computed tomography scan, large left temporal lobe ICH was noted. In transfemoral cerebral angiography, multiple arteries from external carotid artery and left internal carotid artery (ICA) fed arteriovenous shunt. This shunt was drained through cavernous sinus with enlarged multiple cortical veins. One large venous aneurysm was estimated as bleeding focus for ICH. Considering ICH and high flow shunt, we planned urgent treatment to reduce flow of arteriovenous shunt. However, transvenous embolization was failed due to tortuous venous anatomy. Therefore, we planned craniotomy and microsurgical treatment. There was engorged small vessel in lateral wall of cavernous sinus and vascular trunk which is fistulous connection was noted. Fistula connection was obliterated and disconnected after coagulation. In postoperative image, fistula was completely disappeared and there was no cortical venous reflux, also large venous aneurysm was disappeared. Patient recovered very well without new neurological deficits. We reported successfully treated lateral cavernous sinus wall DAVF by combined endovascular and transcranial-microsurgical treatment.
