A 23-year-old East Indian woman with no significant medical history, except a depot-norethisterone enanthate injection taken 3 weeks prior to admission, presented with a gradually worsening headache for the past 5 days. She had no fever, vomiting, neck stiffness, focal weakness or rash, and examination was unremarkable with no focal neurological deficits. Vasculitic, thrombophilia and sepsis screens were normal. A brain CT scan showed a left parietal lobe venous infarct, secondary to a venous dural sinus thrombosis, with MRI and Magnetic Resonance Venogram (MRV) confirming a signal void...

BACKGROUND: Cushing's disease, induced by pituitary adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) secreting adenomas, is associated with high risk factors of stroke. At present, transsphenoidal surgery remains the first line of therapy. Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is an uncommon form of stroke with variable presentations but, to date, there have been no reports of its occurrence in Cushing's disease patients following surgery. CASE DESCRIPTION: We herein report a Cushing's disease case who suffered CVST a few days after a second transsphenoidal surgery...

BACKGROUND: Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is a potentially life-threatening underdiagnosed disease. Headache is a common but nonspecific finding in CVT. Other features such as ocular finding can assist to correct diagnosis, but their frequency in CVT has not been previously evaluated. The aim of this study is to evaluate the ocular symptoms and signs in CVT and their association with outcome. METHODS: The demographic, clinical, laboratory, radiological, and outcome data were collected and analyzed from patients referred to a tertiary hospital during 6 years...

Cranioplasty is a comparatively simple neurosurgical procedure, and fatal complications are rare. This report describes two cases of critical brain swelling after otherwise uneventful cranioplasty. Both cases had subarachnoid hemorrhage and extremely similar clinical courses. They underwent decompressive craniotomy and clipping in the acute phase and had cranioplasty in the chronic phase, resulting in serious cerebral swelling and death. Deep venous sinus thrombosis was revealed in the autopsy for one case...

BACKGROUND: Hypoplasia of the transverse sinus (TS) is a common anatomical variation. However, the relationship between TS hypoplasia and venous thrombosis has not been studied. We analyzed the hypothesis that TS hypoplasia is a predisposing factor for ipsilateral thrombosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 20 confirmed cases with isolated TS thrombosis and 43 age- and sex-matched controls. TS thrombosis and hypoplasia were diagnosed using both computed tomography and magnetic resonance venography...

INTRODUCTION: Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is an immune-mediated complication of heparin exposure. A limited number of studies have reported cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) as the presenting thrombotic event induced by HIT, only one of which occurred with exposure to low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH), with death as outcome. Here, we present a unique case of LMWH-induced HIT leading to CVST but resulting in good clinical outcome. CASE REPORT: A 52-year-old woman received subcutaneous LMWH for deep vein thrombosis prophylaxis while in rehabilitation following kyphoplasty for spinal fracture related to recent trauma...

A 35-year-old woman at eight weeks of gestation in her second pregnancy presented with generalized seizures. Magnetic resonance images revealed a small hemorrhagic infarction in the left frontal lobe, and magnetic resonance venography indicated cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. After hospitalization, anticoagulant therapy was continued, and a low protein C level was confirmed, which was also confirmed in both her mother and her sister. Follow-up magnetic resonance venography performed on day 27 confirmed that the cerebral venous sinuses had undergone recanalization...

A 56-year-old man experienced a sudden onset of left hemiparesis. The computed tomography(CT)scan revealed a lobar hemorrhage in the right fronto-parietal lobe. After his admission, deep vein thrombosis was detected in his left lower limb, and angiograms taken on the 36th day of hospitalization revealed cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. Anticoagulant treatment was induced. After 21 months, he experienced a sudden onset of left hemiparesis again. The CT scan revealed a new lobar hemorrhage in the right frontal lobe, and angiograms revealed that two dural arteriovenous fistulas(dAVF)developed in the superior sagittal sinus(SSS)and the left transverse-sigmoid sinus...

Cerebral venous thrombosis is a potentially lethal disease. Early diagnosis is essential to improve its prognosis. However, its early diagnosis based on conventional imaging modalities remains a challenge in clinical settings. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether bright sinus appearance on arterial spin-labeling perfusion-weighted image (ASL-PWI) could help identify cerebral venous thrombosis.ASL-PWI of 13 patients who were confirmed as cerebral venous thrombosis based on neurologic symptoms and computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance (MR) venography (with/without cerebral angiography) were retrospectively analyzed for the presence or absence of the following: bright signal in dural sinus termed "bright sinus appearance"; and hypoperfusion in brain parenchyma drained by thrombosed sinus...

Purpose Anticoagulation is the first-line therapy for cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVT). Endovascular treatment is increasingly applied in patients deteriorating despite anticoagulation with extensive thrombosis or contraindications for anticoagulation. Experience with stent retrievers in CVT is limited. Results We present three cases of severe CVT treated with stent-retrievers, thrombus aspiration and local thrombolysis. In two patients with extensive thrombosis, a partial recanalization was achieved, but only one of them showed significant improvement...

Headache is a common emergency department chief complaint. Although most are benign, emergency physicians must rapidly identify and manage the uncommon, sometimes subtle, presentation of headache from a life-threatening cause. Cerebral venous thrombosis imparts significant morbidity and mortality, and can be a challenging diagnosis. It most commonly occurs in those under 50 years of age with thrombosis of the cerebral veins/sinuses. Diagnosis is frequently delayed. The disease can present with 1 or more clinical syndromes, including intracranial hypertension with headaches, focal neurologic deficits, seizures, and encephalopathy...

In patients with cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) the incidence of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is estimated at about 37% and subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) at 1% of patients. A case with coincident occurrence of ICH, SAH and CVT in a patient with cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is reported. A 79-year-old woman was admitted to the Neurological Department after the occurrence of generalized seizures, the first in her life. On admission she was unconscious with right hemiparesis and deviation of eyes to the left...
