We report a case of an 8-year-old child with traumatic carotico-cavernous fistula. The diagnosis was obtained by magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic resonance angiography and Doppler imaging and the fistula treated by percutaneous embolisation. We emphasize the duplex Doppler findings of superior ophtalmic vein in this study.
