The authors studied retrospectively the clinical aspects of 15 patients presenting a carotid cavernous sinus fistula. Therapeutic indications and results of treatment are discussed. All patients had prooptosis, chemosis and dilated episcleral vessels. 12 patients were treated by embolisation or surgery, treatment was successful in 8 patients. 3 patients had a conservative follow-up because their symptoms were minimal.
