Deep cerebral venous thrombosis: Rare cause of stroke in children

VIEWS: 22 PAGES: 4

Clinical presentations of childhood cerebral sinovenous thrombosis are nonspecific and variable. Computed tomography venography and magnetic resonance imaging with magnetic resonance venography are the investigation of choice for the diagnosis of sinovenous thrombosis. We present an 8-month-old female child with a history of loose stools and vomiting. She subsequently developed altered consciousness and abnormal jerky movements. Magnetic resonance imaging showed sub acute hemorrhagic bithalamic infarcts with deep sinus venous thrombosis. A brief review of the deep sinus venous thrombosis including the present case is presented. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
