OBJECTIVE: Cerebral venous thrombosis is thrombosis of
brain veins and sinuses which are due to prothrombotic process. They
present with various neurological symptoms. The annual incidence is 3-
4/million.
METHODS: Symptoms, demographic data, etiologic
factors, clinical and radiological features of 14 consecutive patients
between July 1st 2006 and July 1st 2008 with cerebral venous
thrombosis are evaluated retrospectively.
RESULTS: The study group comprised 4 men and 10 women. Their mean
age was 44.2±19 years. Headache is the most frequent symptom,
present in %92.8 of the patients. Papilloedema (50%), impairment of
level of consciousness (14.3%), vertigo (14.3%), visual disturbances
(14.3%) were the other symptoms. Eight patients were admitted just
because of headache. Seven patients had one and seven patients had
more than one sinus involvement.
CONCLUSION: The incidence is rare but the outcome of this disorder is
generally favourable if diagnosed. Cerebral venous thrombosis must be
remembered in the differantial diagnosis of headaches of unknown
etiologie.
