Abstract

Orbital Computerized Tomography was utilized in seven cases of angiographically proven carotid-cavernous sinus fistulae. The findings were as follows: (A) proptosis (in all cases), (B) enlarged superior opthalmic vein (in six cases) and (C) introorbital muscle enlargement (in three cases). Carotid-cavernous sinus fistulae can usually be differentiated from other entities in the clinical differential diagnosis by the use of orbital CT.
