A 46-year-old man presented with severe visual loss and optic atrophy associated with optociliary shunt vessels. The diagnostic work-up revealed intracranial hypertension and cerebral venous sinus stenosis, with no evidence of previous thrombosis. In view of the severe visual dysfunction, both eyes were submitted to optic nerve sheath fenestration. After surgery, a regression of collateral vessels was observed in both eyes.

BACKGROUND: Studies with limited sample size and with discordant results described the recanalization time course of cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT). The neurological outcome after a first episode of CVT is good, but the role of recanalization on the neurological dependency is still debated. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study is to assess the recanalization rate after cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) and its prognostic role on long-term neurological outcome. PATIENTS/METHODS: In a retrospective observational multicentre cohort study, patients with an acute first episode of CVT with at least one available imaging test during follow-up were enrolled...

A 60-year-old woman with history of multiple myeloma was in remission after stem cell transplant 6 years prior. She was undergoing work-up for headaches that were thought to be secondary to a right mastoiditis seen on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). On routine eye exam, papilloedema was noted. A lumbar puncture was performed, with elevated opening pressure with normal constituents. She was an atypical age for idiopathic intracranial hypertension, and her mastoiditis raised concern for secondary cerebral venous sinus thrombosis...

BACKGROUND: Cerebral venous thrombosis is a rare cause of stroke, with a number of well-defined risk factors. However, there exist few studies that describe trends in the prognosis of this disease over time. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed on patients diagnosed with cerebral venous thrombosis at the University of Alberta Hospital during two time periods: 1988-1998 (21 patients) and 1999-2009 (40 patients). Signs and symptoms, risk factors, imaging findings, etiologies, treatment modalities, and status at discharge were examined...

Eighty percent of children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) survive with current treatments. Neurotoxicity is an infrequent adverse event. We describe clinical presentations of neurological toxicity, phases of treatment when these adverse events were more frequent and patients ́ outcome. From January-1995 to December-2015, 1379 ALL cases were admitted. Neurotoxicity was diagnosed in 49 patients (3.6%) and classified according to neurological syndromes. Medical records, laboratory-tests and images were reviewed...

This study investigated for the first time brain ischemic involvement in 19 consecutive neurologically asymptomatic PNH patients by non-enhanced cerebral MRI, and by intracranial arterial and venous angio-MRI. Eleven cases (58%, 7 aged <65) showed pathological findings: 9 white matter (WM) abnormalities related to chronic ischemic small vessel disease, 2 a focal abnormality >5 mm, and 5 cases a score >4 by the age-related white matter changes (ARWMC) scale. Compared with age and sex-matched controls (1:2 ratio), patients showed an increased frequency of periventricular WM vascular degeneration (32% versus 5...

We report the burden of risk factors in cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) and its relationship with the clinical severity, extent of MRI and MRV abnormality, and outcome. One hundred and twenty-eight consecutive patients with CVST were included. Their demographic, presenting symptoms and neurological findings were noted and risk factors of CVST were evaluated. The outcomes were assessed using modified Rankin Scale (mRS). Based on the risk factors, the patients could be categorized as prothrombotic conditions only in 46 (35...

RATIONALE: Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) comprises a group of cerebral vascular diseases resulting from cerebral venous outflow obstruction caused by various etiologies. The etiology of CVT is complex, including infectious and noninfectious factors. The diagnosis is difficult. As a result, many patients are misdiagnosed or never diagnosed. This patient was diagnosed with CVT due to unilateral internal jugular vein compression. PATIENT CONCERNS: In this report, we present a case of acute onset CVT in a 15-year-old female patient who presented with a headache, nausea, and vomiting as the main clinical manifestations...

A common misconception is that immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) causes only bleeding diathesis. From this case vignette of a young male with ITP who had cerebral venous thrombosis, we highlight the importance of considering venous thrombosis in such patients when they present with focal cerebral signs.

Venous thromboembolism (VTE), including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), is a preventable cause of in-hospital death, and one of the most prevalent vascular diseases. There is a lack of knowledge with regards to contemporary presentation, management and outcomes of patients with VTE. Many clinically important subgroups (including the elderly, those with recent bleeding and pregnant patients) have been under-represented in clinical trials. Furthermore, design of clinical trials is challenging in some scenarios, such as in those with hemodynamically unstable PE...

Introduction: The burden of stroke has been increasing worldwide, especially in developing countries. Very few data regarding epidemiology of stroke are available in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BH). Patients and methods: We undertook a retrospective hospital-based study in all hospitals existing in five cantons and one district of BH. The patients were recruited between January 1st, 2014, and December 31st, 2014, and only first-ever-in-lifetime strokes (FES) were included for evaluation...

BACKGROUND: Patients with acute severe headache, normal neurological examination, and a normal noncontrast head computed tomography (NCCT) may still have subarachnoid hemorrhage, cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT), cervical arterial dissection, or reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS). Computed tomography angiography (CTA) is used increasingly in the emergency department for evaluating this, but its added value remains controversial. METHODS: We retrospectively collected data on the diagnostic yield of CTA in patients with acute severe headache, normal neurological examination, and normal NCCT who received additional CTA in the acute phase in 2 secondary referral centers for vascular neurology...

Background: Few studies have investigated structural imaging findings of cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) in China. The structural imaging [head computed tomography (CT) and routine brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)] can assess any parenchymal lesion secondary to the venous thrombosis and reveal direct signs of intraluminal thrombus. In recent years, many patients can be diagnosed with CVT more rapidly and directly by structural imaging. The aim of the present study is to determine the performance of structural imaging in the diagnosis and outcome of CVT in a large cohort single center of Chinese patients...

BACKGROUND: Cortical vein thrombosis (CVT) receives little attention in adult patients with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST). This study aimed to investigate the clinical and radiological features of adult CVST patients with concomitant CVT. METHODS: From May 2009 to May 2016, we recruited 44 adult CVST patients (diagnosed within 1 month of onset; 33.8 ± 14.0 years of age, 28 males). CVT was primarily confirmed using computed tomography venography and magnetic resonance imaging sequence of contrast enhanced three dimensions magnetization prepared rapid acquisition with gradient echo...

RATIONALE: The superior sagittal sinus (SSS) and transverse sinus are the major dural sinuses that receive a considerable amount of venous drainage. The occlusion of them has been suggested to cause intracranial hypertension, hemorrhage, and lead to potentially fatal consequences. PATIENT CONCERNS: We reported a 35-year-old woman with headache presented to our emergency department with a decreased level of consciousness and epileptic seizures. The examination of speech, higher mental function, and cranial nerve were normal...

OBJECTIVE Pediatric cerebral venous sinus thrombosis has been previously described in the setting of blunt head trauma; however, the population demographics, risk factors for thrombosis, and the risks and benefits of detection and treatment in this patient population are poorly defined. Furthermore, few reports differentiate between different forms of sinus pathology. A series of pediatric patients with skull fractures who underwent venous imaging and were diagnosed with intrinsic cerebral venous sinus thrombosis or extrinsic sinus compression is presented...
