An anterior fossa dural arteriovenous malformation was treated with radiosurgery. The lesion was irradiated with 3000 cGy to the 80% isodose line of an 18-mm collimator. Angiography revealed complete thrombosis 3 years after treatment. The case is described in detail, and the pertinent literature is reviewed.
