A 15- year-old boy with history of BB gun injury to his left eye was referred to our center. His visual acuity was no light perception in the left eye. Ocular findings were severe proptosis, conjunctival injection, and conjunctival vascular tortuosity. Fundus examination revealed an extensive inferior chorioretinal scar compatible with chorioretinitis sclopetaria. A distinct bruit was detected by left orbital auscultation. Orbital and brain CT- scan showed transected optic nerve by the BB gun pellet which lodged at the left parasellar area. Cerebral angiography showed a high flow direct carotid-cavernous fistula that was successfully treated by endovascular embolization. This patient is the first reported case of concomitant carotid-cavernous fistula, optic nerve transection, and chorioretintis sclopetaria due to BB gun injury.
