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
