Cerebral venous infarction due to transverse sinus thrombosis


Example of venous infarct with hemorrhage due to dural sinus thrombosis.

Practical points (from dural venous sinus thrombosis article)

  • infarction in a non-arterial location, especially when bilateral or hemorrhagic
  • cortical or peripheral hemorrhage, especially when heterogeneous and gyriform
  • cortical edema
  • direct signs of a thrombus (e.g. dense clot sign, cord sign, empty delta sign)
