Abstract

Arteriovenous fistulae (AVF) of the head and neck region are extremely rare, especially those that occur spontaneously. We present the case of a 58 year old female with a spontaneous postauricular AVF causing troublesome pulsatile tinnitus. In this case a simple surgical procedure completely cured the patient of her symptoms.
