Intracranial arteriovenous fistulae involve anomalous connections between cerebral arterial and venous vessels. In this chapter, the authors discuss two of the three forms of fistulae: carotid-cavernous fistulae and vein of Galen malformations. Dural arteriovenous fistula (dAVFs) will be discussed in a separate chapter. For each lesion subtype, the classification, clinical manifestations, imaging, treatment, and prognosis are reviewed.
