Cerebral sinovenous thrombosis in a child with Crohn's disease, otitis media, and meningitis


Selvitop, Omer; Poretti, Andrea; Huisman, Thierry Agm; Wagner, Matthias W (2015). Cerebral sinovenous thrombosis in a child with Crohn's disease, otitis media, and meningitis. Neuroradiology Journal, 28(3):274-277.

Abstract

Pediatric cerebral sinovenous thrombosis (CSVT) is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Severe long-term sequelae are reported in up to 48% of children. The most frequent location of CSVT in children is the superficial venous system. We present the neuroimaging findings using both computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a 10-year-old child with extensive superficial CSVT. Our report aims to stress the importance of awareness of risk factors in suspecting and rapidly diagnosing CSVT. The application of targeted conventional and advanced MRI sequences is the diagnostic tool of choice in children at risk of or with clinically suspected CSVT.
