A case of a nontraumatic arteriovenous fistula of the superficial temporal artery, documented on selective external carotid arteriography, is described in a 42-year-old man who was successfully treated by complete surgical excision. The clinical features, differential diagnosis, and treatment of arteriovenous fistulas of the superficial temporal artery are reviewed.
