A case is reported of a traumatic middle meningeal arteriovenous fistula, which was formed on the contralateral side to the head injury without a skull fracture and was no longer demonstrable on the repeated angiogram after 35 days without any surgical intervention. Possible mechanisms of fistula formation and its spontaneous closure are discussed.
