Primary intraventricular haemorrhage (PIVH) is rare. Dural arteriovenous fistula causing PIVH is extremely rare. We report a case of a 17 year old boy who presented with left hemiparesis, left lower motor neuron facial palsy and ataxia. His computed tomography head revealed primary intraventricular hemorrhage. Catheter super selective angiography revealed a dural arterio venous fistula with arterial feeder arising from the middle meningeal artery as well as from the inferior marginal tentorial artery. Glue injection led to successful disappearance of the fistula and eventual clinical recovery.
