Abstract

Background: We report an unusual case of a true dural aneurysm arising from the posterior meningeal artery that fed a symptomatic dural arteriovenous fistula located at the right transverse-sigmoid sinus junction. Clinical presentation: A 29-year-old right-handed white woman presented with aneurysmal dilatation of hypertrophied posterior meningeal artery feeding a partially treated dural arteriovenous fistula. INTERVENTION: The aneurysm, which measured approximately 3 mm in width and 5 mm in length, was located in the intracranial space with a thin-walled dome projecting toward the cerebellum. Its afferent and efferent vessels were identified, secured, and the lesion was excised en bloc. Conclusion: A thorough evaluation of all diagnostic studies should be performed for patients with vascular malformations to help identify these or other unusual lesions that may aid in the risk stratification process and management plan.
