Donald P Mebust, Jordan A Zeigler


We describe a case of a 30-year-old female with a history of the Vascular form of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome who presented to a community Emergency Department with complaints of eye pain, blurred vision, and diplopia. On examination, she was noted to have proptosis, scleral injection and an ocular bruit. Imaging studies demonstrated dissection of the carotid artery and a carotid cavernous sinus fistula. Patient underwent endovascular coil embolization of the lesion with resolution of symptoms.
