Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis


Intracranial venous thrombosis may occur at any time from infancy to old age (most often affects young adults and children). Is a relatively uncommon but serious neurologic disorder that is potentially reversible with prompt diagnosis and appropriate medical care.

It is a difficult diagnosis because of its nonspecific clinical presentation and subtle imaging findings. In about a quarter of the patients with CVST the cause remains unknown.

Worth mentioning the age of the particular patient (CVST is uncommon in older ages).
