ABSTRACT

Post-traumatic sphenoid sinus pseudoaneurysm arising from the cavernous segment of the internal carotid artery (ICA) is rare, and even rarer occurrence is an associated carotid-cavernous fistula (CCF).  Here we present the case of a young male patient presenting with intractable epistaxis due to a post-traumatic sphenoid sinus pseudoaneurysm of the internal carotid artery and a simultaneous carotid-cavernous fistula.

Keywords: Aneurysm, Carotid-Cavernous Fistula (CCF), Internal Carotid Artery (ICA).
