Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


Background: Cerebral Sinus Venous Thrombosis (CSVT) is a type of stroke where the thrombosis occurs in the venous side of the brain circulation, that leading to occlusion of one or more cerebral veins and dural venous sinus. CSVT represents 0,5-1% of all strokes and is a part of a neurological emergency that might misdiagnose at the beginning of a presentation. It's because the symptoms and clinical course of CSVT are highly variable, etiological factors are even more heterogeneous making CSVT a unique clinical entity.

Case report: We report a case of a 26 years old woman diagnosed with CSVT presenting with loss of consciousness after seizure 3 hours before admission. She improved with anticoagulation medication. After investigation of what possibly happened to this patient, we predict that malformation of the left transverse sinus might contribute the thrombus formation.

Conclusion: Our report highlights the value of early recognition of CSVT with neuroimaging is the most important to treat the patient for a better outcome
