A case is presented of a 38-year-old woman with extracranial A-V communication of purely external carotid artery distribution. Diagnosis was established by carotid arteriography and blood oximetry. Veins primarily involved were posterior auricular and occipital ones with the varicose appearing mass overlying the mastoid process, Ligation of external carotid artery with concomitant individual division of occipital, lingual and facial arteries restored blood flow through normal pathways and resulted in disappearance of subjective symptoms. Follow-up arteriography and blood oximetry confirmed obliteration of abnormal communication.
