Abstract

Dementia is a common medical problem that affects elderly patients. We report on a 77-year-old man with an intracranial dural arteriovenous fistula who presented with dementia that was initially thought to be irreversible and degenerative. Subsequent neuroendovascular intervention resulted in significant functional and cognitive improvement.
