Dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) manifestations vary from headache to serious intracranial bleed, but very rarely present with seizure. The presentation is usually in the adult period, but there are citied cases in childhood. The diagnosis is challenging and mainly radiological, plain computed tomography (CT) brain can be normal if no bleed, and therefore, CT angiography and magnetic resonance imaging are the most reliable tools in the diagnosis of DAVF. Here, we report a rare case of dural fistula in an old male who presented with seizures and treated by endovascular intervention, which is one of the rare cases in Qatar.
