The existence of the vein of the foramen caecum (VFC) in humans is still controversial. We present 2 patients with intracranial drainage of the nasal mucosa by a frontal cortical vein into a superior sagittal sinus, demonstrated by digital subtraction angiography. In both, the position of the intracranial passage was found to be slightly paramedian. An analogy to the VFC is made.
