A 14-year-old girl presented with suspected dermoid cyst of scalp underwent Neuroimaging to look for intracranial communication. Her neurological examination was essentially normal. On Magnetic Resonance Imaging(MRI), an anterior persistent falcine sinus(PFS) was noted draining into the middle portion of the superior sagittal sinus. There was developmental venous anomaly (DVA) involving the right frontal lobe. To our knowledge, it is a rare instance of the combination of an anterior persistent falcine sinus and associated DVA.
