Rajul Rastogi, Asif Majid Wani, Pawan Joon, Yuktika Gupta, Shourya Sharma, Pankaj Kumar Das and Vijai Pratap Singh

Carotico-cavernous fistula (CCF) is a rare entity referring to abnormal communication between cavernous sinus and carotid arterial system (either internal or external or both) directly or through their branches. Though majority of cases have been reported secondary to head trauma yet spontaneous cases have also been described. We present an interesting case of CCF that developed secondary to blunt ocular trauma not yet described in the medical literature.
