Abstract

The development of an arteriovenous fistula as a complication following a thyroidectomy is a rare phenomenon. We report a case of a 24 year old man who developed this unusual complication post operatively. The fistula was detected during a routine follow up 3 months after the surgery when he complained of a vibration in his neck. Diagnosis of an abnormal communication between the right superior thyroid artery and the internal jugular vein was demonstrated by performing a Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA). He was successfully treated with embolization and coiling of the aneurysm.
