AbstractA 24-year-old woman presented with headache, nausea, and vomiting, and was found to have chronic superior sagittal sinus (SSS) thrombosis and multiple dural arteriovenous fistulae (dAVFs). Despite anticoagulant therapy and successful recanalization of her sinus, her fistulae persisted, and she developed additional separate pial arteriovenous fistulae (pAVFs). Her fistulae were treated with staged endovascular embolization, open clipping, and gamma knife radiosurgery over the course of 10 months. Complete resolution of SSS thrombosis and all arteriovenous fistulae (AVFs) was noted on cerebral angiogram performed 18 months from initial presentation.
