Abstract:

Background: Carotid jugular fistula is not a common complication of Hemodialysis access that
often requires surgical repair. Cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome could happen after long standing
carotid lesion.
Case Report: We report a case of an arteriovenous fistula that presented as dizziness and headache
following a trial of jugular vein catheterization. The surgical therapy was accomplished but the
patient developed major neurological deficit effects on the third day postoperative, with normal
laboratory and imaging investigation; CT brain and color coated duplex ultrasonography on the
carotid system.
Conclusion: Carotid jugular fistula is a rare complication of IJV catheterization. Cerebral
hyperperfusion syndrome could happen after CJF elimination whatever its duration that can be
reversible with early recognition and proper management.
