A cerebrovascular accident with unusual features.
A 64 y/o man experienced during 2 weeks TIA's or TIA's like episodes, once or twice a day, with or without contralateral pain in the head. CT Scans showed peculiar enhanced areas appended to the superior sagittal sinus. Angiography was refused. Twenty-seven months later during mild exertion a left frontal hematoma developed. Among frontal symptoms and signs laconism, abulia and a striking whispering were prominent. Angiography showed a dural arteriovenous fistula draining into cortical veins on the inner aspect of the left hemisphere. The fistula was successfully operated.
