Dural venous sinus thrombosis with intracerebral hemorrhage

  • Macrovascular lesions, such as venous thrombosis, underlie 10-15% of spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage.
  • Early identification of such abnormalities is important to allow appropriate treatment.
  • Specific features on non contrast CT of an underlying macrovascular lesion include hyperdense dural venous sinuses and cerebral veins.
  • Dural venous sinus thrombosis should be considered in patients presenting with clinical features of raised intracranial pressure
