There have been no reported cases of superior sagittal sinus thrombosis
in the setting of nonmetastatic RCC.
Non-parenchymal CNS involvement mainly presents with intracranial hypertension due to dural sinus thrombosis
Orbital cellulitis or abscess may lead to thrombosis of the superior ophthalmic vein, which may lead to cavernous sinus thrombosis
Patients with papilledema often undergo additional imaging of the venous sinuses in order to exclude venous sinus thrombosis
as a cause for elevated intracranial pressure.
Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis
in children: risk factors, presentation, diagnosis and outcome.
The events included strokes, brain hemorrhages, and venous sinus thrombosis
13,14) The deep veins of the extremities are most commonly affected, followed by axillary, retinal, hepatic, and cerebral venous sinus thrombosis
I was able to then quickly diagnose her with cavernous sinus thrombosis
and get her the help she needed.
Based on these findings, PRES and superior sagittal sinus thrombosis
were considered the differential diagnosis.
Retrospective analysis suggests that anticoagulation may reduce mortality in selected cases; such as septic cavernous sinus thrombosis
complicated by subarachnoid abscess and SPE (11).
He was suffering from meningitis and a venous sinus thrombosis
- blood clots to the dural venous sinuses, which drain blood from the brain.
Testing for hereditary thrombophilia in patients following a first episode of intra-abdominal thrombosis or cerebral sinus thrombosis
does not clearly predict the risk of recurrence, and it does not provide evidence-based data on which to determine the duration of treatment.
Protein S deficiency may result in venous thromboembolic phenomena including deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolus, inferior vena cava thrombosis, renal or hepatic vein thrombosis, and intracranial venous and dural sinus thrombosis
[2,3,11,12], as well as arterial thrombosis leading to stroke [3,13-17].
They used the technique to evaluate 10 patients who had clinical and imaging features consistent with what is called partially recanalized chronic dural sinus thrombosis
, a condition in the membrane surrounding the brain where blood flow has been partially re-established in a previously blocked vessel.
Superior vena cava syndrome, Budd-Chiari syndrome, retinal vein thrombosis, dural sinus thrombosis
, and mural thrombosis in myocardial sarcoidosis are other examples of venous thrombosis associated with sarcoidosis.
