Abstract

Intercavernous communication between the left and right internal carotid arteries is an uncommon entity. The authors report a case involving a pediatric patient who was found to have such a vascular anomaly. Such variations should be known by the neurosurgeon so as to avoid misdiagnosis and potential iatrogenic injury.
